Welcome to the new National Locksmith Registry
This registry is open to ALL Locksmiths (not just Institutional) and security personnel whether they are
currently members of an existing organization or not. The National Locksmith Registry has been created in
order to provide a legitimate database of Locksmiths and Security personnel from across Canada who have
completed and passed an RCMP criminal background check (form C216-C). This registry is for individuals
only and not open to companies or corporations. The registry will not interfere with any province’s existing
Locksmith legislation and will only go to enhance our industry in the last remaining areas of Canada where
there is no legitimate licensing and legislation. The National Locksmith Registry is a creation of and owned
by ILOC and will provide the public,
corporate, institutional and private sectors with the means to carry out safety and due diligence checks of
their contractors and installers of security and door hardware as well as create peace of mind with residential
customers regarding who is controlling the keys to their homes. This is a serious issue that has been neglected
for far too long. The new National Locksmith Registry will go hand in hand with proper training to provide
our industry with the best Locksmiths and security personnel possible for our clients.
