The property and casualty insurance industry paid an estimated $500 million last year for personal injury insurance claims that contained some form of fraud, according to a study released by the Canadian coalition against insurance fraud (CCAIF). Ontario is home to the most auto insurance fraud in Canada, and in fact, the province is famed for it even outside of the country. It is a significant contributor to drivers in Canada’s most populated area paying vastly higher premiums than those in other provinces.


We boldly stand on obtaining not only first-rate HD-4K video results in all cases but demanding of ourselves a standard, unlike no other Private Investigator Firm in Toronto, Mississauga, Calgary or Halifax. We will continually go above and beyond to ensure exceptional quality video evidence and comprehensive reports. It is an objective of ours to frequently assist Insurance companies in minimizing their damage due to misrepresentation.

The Smith Investigation Agency’s trademark investigations also known as trademark infringement investigations, counterfeit investigations, and trademark in-use Investigations exceed the industry standard. Our team of professional Private Investigators can assist in your trademark investigation whether you need to determine if someone is missing your trademark or illegally trading on your name. Our Investigators will complete an undercover investigation to ensure your brand is being represented in the way its supposed to be.

Your business is your brand, and the best way to protect your business is to safeguard your brand. We protect some of Canada’s largest brands, and we want to protect yours too.

The Anti Fraud-Centre recently reported that “fraud is a crime that threatens every Canadian, regardless of their education, age or income. From January 2014 to December 2016, it is estimated that Canadians lost over $290 million to fraudsters.”


Having knowledge of these results we are steadfast to see these numbers decline. Our risk management– anti-fraud unit in Toronto, Calgary and Halifax focuses on identifying what risks exist and then handling those risks in a way best suited to your objectives. We believe in managing the unmanageable.

As seen in the past our clients find our skip tracing, locate, background checks, and pre-employment screening to be paramount to their company’s success. If you own or run a business and want continued growth consistently monitoring and having first-hand knowledge of who you are hiring, who works for you and who your opposition is, is indispensable. Allow a professional skip tracer to complete your background check, locate or pre-employment screening.

Additionally, if you are looking to locate someone like a birth mother or father or locate a family member, we can assist. As well our team can assist in locating missing debtors, missing heirs and beneficiaries.

There is a large misconception of what a Private Investigator (commonly referred to as Private Detective) does. We offer a variety of services to all individuals and businesses. Particularly we complete family investigations like child custody, matrimonial investigations, wellness checks, child and senior activity checks, etc.

You’ve seen it on TV and in the movies: a woman suspects her husband is hiding something from her. She hires a private investigator to uncover what’s really going on. The private investigator tracks the husband only to discover that he has been stashing art, jewelry, and money in offshore accounts.


In a lot of cases, this type of thing isn’t just fiction. For many, it’s a cold, hard reality. However, it helps to explain why uncovering hidden assets is one of the most common requests of a private investigator or private investigation company.


The term, “asset search” might bring up a few questions like, what exactly is an asset search? When do you need to hire a private investigator to perform an asset search? How exactly does a private investigator conduct an asset search? And most importantly, why is an asset search so important?
