PIABC is an association of professional licensed private investigators and security consultants in British Columbia. We also offer Associate membership to private investigators and security consultants lawfully licensed in other jurisdictions.
The Mission of PIABC is to establish and maintain a high standard of ethics for its members; to disseminate information relating to ethical practice in private investigation; to provide professional development to its members, to encourage association between owners and operators of private investigation companies, agencies and security professionals; to educate the communities which the members serve about private investigation and the services rendered to the public.
We recommend at least four steps in hiring a PI firm.
Ascertain that they are licensed as a PI firm by the Security Programs and Police Technologies Division of the Ministry of the Solicitor General.
Ascertain that the firm is a member in good standing with PIABC by using our ‘Find-A-PI’ search tool or using our more specific PIABC member search.
Ensure that the firm can supply the investigative resources appropriate for your unique needs.
