Know Your Rights with Private Security

The publication of the Know Your Rights with Private Security cards comes after years of conflict between private security guards and marginalized people in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside. The cards will help residents better understand their rights and what they can do when their rights have been violated.

Using the law as a catalyst for positive social change, Pivot Legal Society works to improve the lives of marginalized communities.

The rights cards provide the contact information for the Ministry of Justice, where people who believe they have had their rights violated by private security can make a complaint. We hope the rights cards will encourage people to file more complaints and further engage the provincial regulator in addressing misconduct by private security guards.
