There are many ways that a PI can help their clients within the means of the law. This includes locating lost loved ones or finding someone who has skipped bail, investigating infidelity or fraud, uncovering hidden assets, monitoring workplace theft or harassment, investigating fraudulent claims or online scams, completing background checks, performing surveillance, using skip tracing, plus a range of other investigative and research based services that are legally permitted in Ontario. What a PI cannot do is wiretap a phone, trespass on private property, impersonate an officer or arrest an individual.
