Our licensed private investigators can help. We serve clients in all major cities in Ontario with expert skip tracing services, skip search services, and location services.

What is skip tracing? Skip tracing is the process of locating a person’s whereabouts, whether it is a debtor who has skipped town or simply a loved one that you have lost touch with over the years. When traditional methods of locating an individual do not work, professional private investigators can find the information you need.

Has a contractor vanished without finishing work on your property? Need to find the correct address to serve your ex-spouse with legal documents? Looking to recover payment from a deadbeat client? Are you trying to find adoption information or locate beneficiaries of an estate? Skip tracing services will return the information you need to locate the missing individual.
