Message from the 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
CAWI Webinar: Becoming a Workplace Investigator
In Canada, individuals that want to conduct workplace investigations as consultants, must be licensed in accordance with their respective provincial legislation. In addition to licensing requirements, provincial legislation sets out rules and regulations, as well as a Code of Conduct that private investigators must follow.
Licensing requirements are not well-known but it is important that communication gets out there since conducting investigations without a license is not lawful. Each province has its own set of rules and the costs will vary based on the province issuing the license. The main components of licensing is the same Canada-wide.
Please note that this webinar is targeted towards the Canadian investigator.
