Who we are

The Canadian Security Lifesaver Association is a non-profit organization created to recognize and celebrate front-line security workers in Canada.


When visitors provide information to the site while nominating others and identifying themselves as the nominator, we collect the data shown in the nomination forms. This information is collected only for the purposes of the nomination process, and is stored in a private database that is not accessible to anyone outside the CSLA board. This information is not used for any purpose other than for CSLA to properly identify nominees, select recipients, and follow up with nominators for confirmation purposes. Your data is not sold or aggregated.


If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.


If you visit our nomination page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
