Cox v. Canadian Corps of Commissionaires, 2003 CarswellSask 685 (Sask. Q.B.)

The Canadian Corps of Commissionaires is a non-profit organization providing employment to people who have served in the Canadian military or police services.

It provides security and related services to clients, and its organization is based on a military model, with employees holding ranks comparable to the military. Its operations in southern Saskatchewan are headed up by a colonel. In 1999, Sergeant Denise Ann Cox was working for the Corps, teaching and co-ordinating people in parking enforcement.
