On June 23, 2015, the Parliamentary Protective Service was created by law under the Parliament of Canada Act. The Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Commons are, as the custodians of the powers, privileges, rights and immunities of their respective Houses and of the members of those Houses, responsible for the Service. The newly created parliamentary entity amalgamated the former Senate Protective Service, House of Commons Security Services, and detection specialists, into a single unified security service to serve the Parliament of Canada. The lead of the organization is the Director of PPS and executes his mandate under the joint general policy direction of the Speaker of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Commons.
Protection Officers are armed personnel responsible for protecting the Parliament Buildings so parliamentarians and employees can carry out their legislative duties in a safe and secure environment. They also balance security with access to promote a safe and positive experience for visitors.
