Advanced Security LP
In March 2012, Advanced Security became a community-owned enterprise established as part of the works of Attawapiskat Resources Inc. – now Attawapiskat Enterprises. Advanced Security, a Timmins, Ontario-based provider of security and security risk management protective services, has operated throughout the region for more than 25 years.
It is the first and only wholly-First Nation-owned and licensed security firm in Ontario.
- Advanced Security is delivering 20 contracts in the City of Timmins and throughout Northeastern Ontario.
- In a Joint Venture with a Moose Cree First Nation member business, it has been contracted to provide services at the Lower Mattagami Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Smoky Falls Station site.
- Security personnel have been hired for the Mid-Canada Radar Site 415 (Ontario Government) Environmental Remediation Project at Cape Henrietta Maria on James Bay.
- The company is an important generator of jobs for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people in the region. Currently there are 130 employees, including hires for local contracts in the area of Attawapiskat First Nation community itself.
This progress and these priorities make the company an excellent component of the Attawapiskat Enterprises business strategy and
for First Nation ownership.
