About the Allan Dryburgh Scholarship Fund
The Allan Dryburgh Scholarship fund recognizes the legacy of a founder in professional security guard training.
William Allan Dryburgh (Allan) was a lifelong resident of Winnipeg, Manitoba, with a successful first career as a professional CFL football referee. Allan later launched a security guard business, expanding to almost every province in Canada.
One of the most recognized names in the security industry, Dryburgh authored the foundational security guard curriculum adopted by governments across provinces. Since 2007, his courses have been the template for security guard licensing training.
Dryburgh’s work advanced the professionalism of security services and elevated the national industry. He passed away in 2015. In honour of his achievements, Canadian Academy of Guard Training is awarding promising security service workers across Canada.
