Regulatory Amendment to O. Reg. 26/10 - Training and Testing
O. Reg. 26/10
Regulation - Minister
Bill or Act:
Private Security and Investigative Services Act, 2005 (PSISA)
Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry of the Solicitor General is proposing the following change to Ontario Regulation 26/10 - Training and Testing under the Private Security and Investigative Services Act, 2005 (PSISA):
• Remove the requirement for private career colleges (PCCs) to have security guard and/or private investigator training programs be approved under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 (PCCA).
Currently, under O. Reg. 26/10 Training and Testing of the Private Security & Investigative Services Act (PSISA), any security guard or private investigator training programs provided by a PCC must be approved under the Private Career Colleges Act, 2005 (PCCA). One of the requirements for a program to be approved under the PCCA is that the program costs a minimum of $2,000 (increased from $1,000 due to an amendment to Regulation 415/06 under the PCCA on January 1, 2019).
The proposed regulatory amendment would remove the requirement for security guard or private investigator training programs to have to be approved under the PCCA, thereby having to meet the $2,000 threshold. Instead, PCCs could charge lower fees for security guard and/or private investigator training programs that they provide under the PSISA.
In order to maintain their registration under the PCCA, PCCs must still offer at least one other program/course that meets the $2,000 threshold outlined in the PCCA. If a PCC only offers security guard and/or private investigator training, these programs must cost a minimum of $2,000.
