Ontario Investigations

An Ontario Private Investigator is a civilian in the employ of an Ontario Ontario private investigations company hired to investigate “subjects” by a client. In Ontario, the customer of a PI agency is known as the "client." The “subject” is usually a person or persons but can also be an Ontario business. The customer can be an individual, corporation, and even an Ontario government agency.


What Does an Ontario Private Investigator Investigate?

The Ontario Private Investigator can investigate a wide variety of things; however, Private Investigators in Ontario mostly investigate insurance fraud for insurance companies.

  • However, with the rise of digital technology in the modern age, more Ontario PI agencies are specializing completely on cyber investigations.

Ontario Private Investigators typically take on investigative cases that do not fall under the purview of an ON government agency, such as civil matters while ON government agencies will cover serious criminal cases. Because a Private Investigator is just a normal Ontario citizen, they do not have any special investigative privileges. A Private Investigator in ON has the same power/ authority of any Ontario citizen with the exception that an Ontario PI is allowed to offer investigative services to customers (clients) and has the expertise in investigations.

Ontario PI Clients

The most common clients for Private Investigators in Ontario are insurance companies, law firms, private corporations, and ordinary Ontario citizens. Investigations conducted for these clients will frequently involve potential fraud. Other clients in Ontario will want to obtain more detailed information in order to adjudicate or manage an insurance claim. Many of these cases are mitigated through the hiring of an Ontario Private Investigator. They can include both surveillance and non-surveillance efforts.

Ontario investigations often obtain more information faster than legal processes such as discovery (the pretrial disclosure of relevant evidence), thus providing the Investigator’s clients more information for decision-making.

Ontario Background Research: Using the Internet as an Investigative Tool

Often the largest part of an Ontario background check, the Investigator will utilize the internet/ Google as an investigative tool to research the subject's personal history:

Obviously, searching social media platforms will be an important part of this Ontario background check process. 

However, a lot of information can be found on a resident outside of social media. There could be many mentions of the person on various websites. Many people have a rudimentary grasp on searching the internet via Google. An average person could find a few pieces of information when searching on the internet. However, a skilled Ontario Cyber Investigator will be able to find all relevant information and be able to accurately verify and document it properly. This is why, even with a simple background check task, an experienced and skilled Ontario Cyber Investigator should always be utilized.
