Our roots are in Northern Canada where, to this day, we specialize in remote industrial security supporting businesses and municipalities with diverse needs in unique operating conditions. In 2010, our ownership identified a need in the market place for specialized security services. The Scarlet Security Group was formed, offering both a specialized guard force program to the mining and resource sector, and a unique operating model for First Nation partnerships. Since 2012, Scarlet has expanded in size, region, and service offerings, through organic growth and acquisitions. We now operate in five provinces and two territories including British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunswick, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut.
Scarlet Group has built a reputation with clients, employees, and respective communities based on integrity and mutual respect. Our culture is to consistently treat all parties involved in our projects with honesty, dignity, and fairness. We ensure our values and standards are instilled within our employees, and conduct our business in accordance with the highest ethical standards. We believe in investing in our people to enable their success. Our guards receive excellent pay, benefits, and training, ensuring they are equipped to perform their duties correctly and safely.
Our unique approach to partnerships in our communities of operation distinguishes Scarlet within the industry and allows the benefits of clients projects to be fully realized within the local community. We operate a number of Joint Venture and Partnership Companies, and over 70% of our workforce within those divisions live within the region. Our company had been built on meaningful partnerships with local Aboriginal groups, combining our world-class expertise, intimate knowledge of the regions where we work, and our commitment to provide training, employment, and financial opportunities for the local Aboriginal communities.
