WHO are the private investigators?
First of all, we are independent professionals, accredited by the province where we provide our services. Some of us have law enforcement, military, or secret service background, but some come from HR, security, finance and insurance industries, or simply possess a proven mix of education and experience, that allows to receive the accreditation. Secondly, and I have to be honest, Canadian private investigators have little in common with James Bond, Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Thomas Magnum, Hercule Poirot, or Miss Marple. Our reality is greatly exaggerated in books and movies. We do not smoke opium, wear fedoras, drive million dollar vehicles, or have a license to kill.
In fact, we have no special rights, as police officers for example do, and we don’t carry guns.
