Investigation Services in Canada

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:

Pre-Employment Screening

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.

Employment Investigations

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.

Vendor Screening

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 owners/directors

  • The physical address

  • The number of employees

  • Credit history

  • Judgments

  • Criminal records on key personnel

Non-Competition Agreement Violations

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.

High-Risk Terminations

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.

Audits/Mystery Shopping and Integrity Testing

Are you looking to monitor your employees or objectively evaluate their performance? We can pose as a customer to provide constructive feedback on our interactions with your employees.

  • Financial position

  • History

  • Reputation

  • Executives

  • Key personnel

  • Service and product delivery

Internal Theft

If you are experiencing a high-rate of inventory shrinkage, we will carry out an investigation to identify the cause of loss.

Insurance Fraud Surveillance

Do you have a suspicious insurance claim? We are masters of surveillance, using the most sophisticated and advanced technology in our surveillance investigations. We only use the best equipment in the industry. Our dash camcorders provide superior video quality, recording at full 1080p, full HD, and 30fps. 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.

Regulatory Investigation

If you have been charged with an offence, we will carry out a thorough and independent investigation.

Corporate Surveillance Investigations

If you suspect an employee's benefits claim is not authentic and you have reasonable and probable grounds to believe so, we will carry out a surveillance during work hours to provide evidence of the employee's activities, along with video footage, photographs and a detailed account of the surveillance.

Brand Protection

We work quickly to protect you and your organization from defamation, copyright infringement, piracy, counterfeiting, misappropriation and theft. We gather intelligence, conduct market surveillance and carry out undercover operations.

Occupational Health and Safety Investigations

We conduct investigations to ensure organizations are in compliance with statutory regulations, in contemplation of anticipated litigation, and for the purposes of obtaining further legal advice.

Workplace Investigations and Incidents

As part of our investigation, we collect and analyze evidence, prepare a report, and make specific recommendations for corrective or preventative action.

Due Diligence Investigations

Mitigate corporate risk, and develop policies and procedures to manage any risks that may emerge – we carry out investigative, cyber, financial, forensic, legal, compliance and supply chain due diligence to help you achieve this.


We deal with internal and external fraud, workers compensation, embezzlement, misappropriation, identity theft and online fraud.

Activity Checks

We conduct activity checks, social media investigations and database search investigations, as well as interviews of claimants and employers for insurance companies.

Domestic Matters

We can put your spouse, partner or the person you are dating under surveillance if you suspect they are cheating on you. We use the latest technology to monitor their activities, and we can send any video footage we capture to you in real time, as we understand these cases can be time sensitive.

Missing Persons and Location Services

We provide investigative services to locate individuals for family matters, court matters and missing persons.

Homicide Investigations

We act on behalf of families that are not satisfied with the progress of a police investigation. We have raised awareness of flawed investigations, and we were instrumental in two wrongful murder conviction investigations, aiding in their release from prison.

Wrongful Charges or Convictions

We will carry out a thorough investigation by interviewing crown witnesses, investigating their credibility, conducting detailed interviews and gathering all evidence so that your legal counsel has full disclosure of the evidence.

Home and Business Inventory Services

Fire, flooding, disaster or theft in your home, business or cottage can be a very stressful time. We provide a complete, detailed account of your inventory and photographs of your assets on a flash drive so that you have this readily available for your insurance adjuster when you file your insurance claim.
