Welcome to ASIS Chapter 140!
For over 30 years we have been the voice of corporate security in the National Capital Region. Chapter 140 finds itself in a unique place in Canada and unique in its member composition having civil servants, the private sector, and student security representatives from Canada’s capital.
Our goal is to be leaders in member education and the place where government, business, and educational institutions turn for security support and information.
Please contact us for any information about corporate security. We are the representatives of ASIS International, the world leaders in security for over 60 years.

ASIS Canada Night is an annual social event hosted by Canada Night committee and supporting sponsors. This event attracts attendees from all over the world each year. The event is open to all ASIS Canada and ASIS International members, as well as their guests attending the annual ASIS International Security Conference and Trade Show.
This informal social is where fellow Canadians and ASIS members can meet, mingle and network as well as recognize Canadian members who contribute to the growth and professionalism of the security industry.
This year’s event raised money for Hurricane Relief. Music, food, special souvenirs and a fabulous networking event …it was a record-breaking year.
