Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, all of our private investigators are properly licensed and in full compliance with the laws of the province of British Columbia. Our agents have undergone the necessary training and assessments to obtain their license and are held to the highest professional standards. Our license ensures that our private investigators are qualified and experienced to provide the highest quality services to our clients.

Private Investigators are professionals who specialize in gathering information on behalf of individuals and businesses. They are highly knowledgeable in the use of the latest technology and techniques to conduct thorough investigations. Private Investigators can be hired to locate missing persons, investigate fraud, theft, and harassment, uncover hidden assets, and identify individuals participating in a scam. Additionally, they may also be hired to monitor and observe a subject, perform background checks, and investigate family matters. Private Investigators use a variety of methods and techniques to collect evidence and information, such as surveillance, interviews, and research. They may also use technological tools such as GPS tracking, phone tracking, and data analysis to assist in their investigations. Private Investigators are highly trained and experienced professionals who can provide invaluable assistance to individuals and businesses in need of investigative services.

The primary difference between a Private Investigator (PI) and a Private Detective (PD) is their authority. A Private Detective is an officer of the law, meaning they have the authority to make arrests, carry firearms, and conduct investigations on behalf of their employers. Private Investigators, however, do not typically have these same powers. Private Investigators are usually hired by individuals or companies to conduct investigations that do not require legal authority. This often includes investigative services such as background checks, surveillance, and asset searches.

Yes, private investigators can take video evidence with the proper techniques and within the limits of the law. However, they are not allowed to trespass on personal property to take a video of someone inside their private residence. Private investigators must abide by all provincial laws when collecting evidence, and must take great care to ensure that their evidence-gathering activities do not infringe on any individual's right to privacy. Additionally, if the evidence is to be used in a court of law, private investigators must be able to prove that it was collected legally and that it is authentic.

Wiretapping a phone in British Columbia is illegal without the consent of the person whose conversation is being recorded. There is an exception to this law, however, which is known as the “one-party consent” exception. This exception allows Canadians to record their own conversations with the use of their phone. In other words, it is legal for Canadians to record a conversation they are taking part in as long as they are one of the parties involved. However, it is still illegal to record a conversation that one is not a part of without the consent of all parties involved.
