Many new Security Guards and Private Investigators call us to ask what a Guarantor Information Form is and where they can find it. A Guarantor is someone who confirms your identity and confirms that the identification you provided on your Security Guard or Private Investigator License Application is valid.
A Guarantor MUST be at least 18 years of age, known you for at least 2 years. The Guarantor MUST be able to review the 2 identification documents you provide on your application and be able to confirm your name, age and physical description.
If you do not know someone who has known you for 2 years, the following people can act as your Guarantor:
- your employer
- a valid licensed Ontario Security Guard or Private Investigator
- a chiropractor, dentist, judge justice of the peace, pharmacist, lawyer, mayor, doctor, religious Minister, notary public, police officer, principal or teacher at a primary school, professional accountant, engineer or professor at a public college.
We have provided a link here to the Guarantor Information Form from Service Ontario that must be included in your application for an Ontario Security Guard or Private Investigator License:
