Regulation - Minister
Bill or Act:
Summary of Decision:
The Term of Licences Regulation (Ontario Regulation 367/07) under the Private Security and Investigative Services Act, 2005 has been amended. Previously, individual licences expired exactly one year from the date of issue. The expiry date for individual licence holders will now be the licensee?s birthday.
The term of licence will also increase from one to two years for agencies and renewing individual licence holders (once birth date expiry has been established). These changes will take effect on January 30, 2012.

Summary of Proposal:
The Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services is proposing to amend the Term of Licences Regulation (Ontario Regulation 367/07) under the Private Security and Investigative Services Act, 2005 (PSISA).
The regulation currently states that every licence issued under the Act shall be issued for a term of one year. The Ministry is proposing to increase the term of licence to two years.
The Ministry is also proposing to amend the regulation to provide that individual licenses will expire on the licensee's date of birth.
These proposals are intended to make the private security licensing process more convenient and efficient for licensees.
If approved, it is proposed that this regulatory amendment will come into effect in early 2012.
