Are you looking for a biological parent or sibling? Do you require evidence to prove that you should receive full custody of your children? There are a variety of different reasons that you may need surveillance services, records retrieval or hidden camera detection. No matter the reason, Duncan Investigations Inc provides investigation services across Canada and the US to help our clients resolve difficult situations. We have extensive experience with all types of investigations, and we are dedicated to giving you the peace of mind you need. Some of the investigation services we provide include, but are not limited to:
If your inquiry is for an employment matter, we will require the applicant's written consent. We will verify the authenticity of the applicant's resume, credentials, qualifications, education, professional licensing and references. We can also conduct a criminal record check in some circumstances. Please note that employers cannot necessarily discriminate against someone who has a criminal record. Criminal records may be used against a potential employee if their record affects their ability to carry out their duties.
We assist legal counsel and employers on reasonable and probable grounds if an employee is violating a term of their contract and/or to provide evidence to justify cause for termination.
In the event of a strike, we gather video evidence on behalf of the employer, or legal counsel representing the employer, for injunctions, criminal matters and disruptions.
We act for corporations by screening vendors to ensure they meet certain qualifications. As part of our investigation, we will take photographs of their business locations and verify the following to ensure that the company you are affiliated with is legitimate and reputable:
The authenticity of the business
The physical address
The number of employees
Criminal records on key personnel
If your employee signed a non-competition agreement and you have reasonable grounds to believe they could be employed with a competitor, or operating a competing business, we will conduct surveillance to gather relevant evidence of their activities and determine if they are soliciting and/or meeting any customers.
If you anticipate that an employee may pose a security risk after their termination, we will attend to your business’ premises. We can also attend the termination meeting as a witness, and follow up with an exit strategy.

They also come with night vision, date and time stamps, and a built-in GPS so you can view the full mapping data of the surveillance. We can send the video to you immediately by phone if time is of the essence. On foot, we use body video cameras and pinhole cameras that capture clear shots of faces, activities, vehicles and license plate numbers.
If you have been charged with an offence, we will carry out a thorough and independent investigation.
