Effects of COVID-19 on the Investigations Industry

world united

As the Coronavirus (COVID 19) pandemic continues to significantly affect our lives, both personally and professionally, we want to reach out to you, our valued members and friends.

This global health crisis is affecting every industry world-wide including the investigation and security sector. This is the time to band together to overcome the challenging times ahead.

In an effort to bring everyone in the investigation community closer together we invite everyone to join our private chat group.  It is usually reserved to members only but we are now opening it up to all licensed investigators and agency owners for the next few months. The chat is absolutely FREE.  In the private chat you can directly communicate with investigators from around the world, network, exchange information and ideas among community members.

To join our private chat group, download the FREE app (we are using Signal) via the https://www.signal.org/download/

Once you have opened your free account, email us the phone number linked to the app, at info@cpirc.com with the subject line “Private Chat” and we will add you to our private group!


A quick note on our business continuity
Everyone involved at the Canadian Private Investigators Resource Center has already been setup to work remotely.  Whether it's a potential client in need of an investigator anywhere in the world or a member looking for assistance we are here and will continue to be here. We have been proudly serving the investigation community since 1999 and will be here for many years to come.


Aid to business owners and employees
The following weeks and months will be challenging for agency owners and employees alike.  The Canadian government is actively doing its best to offer support to everyone affected.  The amount of information and the speed at which its being relayed to us can be very confusing and overwhelming.

So, below we have simplified some of the programs offered to owners and employees by providing direct links to the government programs.
