The Canadian Security Industry Pioneer award was established in the late ‘90s to recognize the contributions of ASIS Canadian members who had distinguished themselves through contribution to the growth and professionalism in the security industry. The security practitioners that initiated the award looked not only at the contributions that individuals made to the Canadian Security Industry and contributions to ASIS International in Canada but also to ASIS International globally.
Ron Minion, CPP, was the first recipient of the award in 1999. Ron was instrumental in bringing ASIS to Canada. He along with others primarily in western Canada, specifically Edmonton and Calgary worked tirelessly to establish the first Chapter in Edmonton and then in Calgary. Ron passed away a few years ago after a lengthy battle with ALS also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Nomination forms are due by August 3, 2018.
