Message from CAWI Chair:
Greetings to my fellow Investigators! I am very eager and dedicated to developing and maintaining benefits and programming that are specific to our Canadian members in the investigative community. As part of that initiative, we have implemented a monthly blog on relevant investigations-related topics as well as quarter CAWI webinars commencing in 2018. We recently held a Basics Seminar in Vancouver and look forward to bringing that program to other cities in Canada in the future.
We are regularly looking for blog contributions and members interested in presenting a CAWI webinar.
If you are interested in getting more involved in CAWI and participating in one of AWI's various committees, we would love to have you!
Should you have any questions about CAWI or wish to get more involved, please contact me at email@example.com.
CAWI is hosting an online webinar!
Workplace Harassment Investigations – Working Jointly with the Union
Wednesday, May 2, 2018
Internal workplace harassment investigations are commonly conducted by a company representative, such as from within the Human Resources department or other competent investigators. A different approach includes having a union representative co-investigate the complaint, which can often alleviate difficult conversations and a grievance about the findings after the fact.
Local Circle Meetings:
CAWI currently has local circles in Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver and Calgary. As a CAWI member, you are welcome to attend local circle meetings. It is a great opportunity to share practice ideas and discuss investigations-related issues.
We are delighted that the third AWI Training Institute for 2018 will be held in Whistler, BC.
In keeping with our mission to promote and enhance the quality of impartial workplace investigations, we invite you to join the intensive Training Institute for Workplace Investigators, the gold standard in our industry. The Institute consists of four days of training, including 10 hours of small group sessions with our experienced faculty, and a half-day series of tests. Students who pass the test will receive a certificate indicating that they have mastered the materials and will be permitted to place the designation ‘AWI-CH’ after their name.
