COUNCIL OF PROFESSIONAL INVESTIGATORS OF ONTARIO

We have had continued success with our professional development events, with F.I.T and The Anatomy of an Investigation. The presentations from the Anatomy of an Investigation were recorded for the purpose of being available for distribution. Further information regarding these materials will be provided on the website in the near future. Professional development and collaborative events / networking will continue to be key focal points of the CPIO in 2019. The Council of Professional Investigators of Ontario is proactively promoting the association and its membership through sponsorship and participation in complimentary industry events such as those hosted by the OIAA, CASIU, and various legal/law associations. All agency members will be able to have their promotional/marketing materials made available at any events attended by the CPIO. In promoting members of the CPIO, development of a directory of agency members has been completed and should be published by late Summer 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to thank our administrator – Penny Hill for all of her hard work and the Board of Directors for their commitment and volunteering their time.

Our President’s Message.

For new viewers of this site, and those who are new to the industry and/or considering employment within it, I can share that the investigation industry and its various branches is remarkable. It is a rapidly changing industry and if not engaged in associations and development, many will be left behind and become irrelevant.

As well, our field has a global presence and there are wonderful investigative leaders throughout the world. I urge you to become engaged with local, national and global associations where there is incredible networking and training. The many successful leaders in the industry have followed this path.

Thank you for visiting our site. For your investigative and training requirements across Canada, we are pleased to provide you with links to the provincial associations who can best assist you on matters of local concern, events and even employment opportunities.

President
