What do we actually do?

At Evident, we work closely with you to solve your problems. Whatever those problems may be. We help you to, … Discover the Truth!
Evident operates according to a set of fundamental principles:

  • We seek to serve.
  • We seek to Discover the Truth.
  • We govern all of our advice and activities according to the current state of the law in Canada.
  • We provide excellent value.
Basically what this means is that we stay current, and we will turn work down as opposed to carrying out activities that would not be to the benefit of our client. For an example of this please see our information on surveillance. We want to help, and we want to be effective. We strive to be the best at what we do, and we believe that our excellence will reward our clients.
We have built a unique work-place where our shortest-serving member of our team has been here eight years (the longest three have been here 15 years). Our work environment creates a place where we all “get” to do what we love, and that translates to a desire to serve our clients in the best way possible.
We govern all our activities by our privacy policy.

Often visual evidence of alleged activity is the best proof of an allegation, or of wrong-doing, but surveillance is a very restricted activity. Evident has developed a protocol that will help companies and individuals determine whether surveillance is an appropriate tool to be used, or at what point it could be utilized. Courts and arbiters in Canada have increasingly ruled that surveillance should not be carried out (as it is a significant… Read More

Drug Testing

Certain laws in Canada have been at odds with each other over the past 20 years. Occupational Health & Safety laws have required employers to maintain a safe workplace, free from a variety of hazards, including impaired people. But Human Rights legislation has prohibited employers from random drug and alcohol testing in an effort to protect people’s privacy and human rights. Both are admirable goals, but it is clear that they… Read More

Human Resource Investigations

Increasingly the courts in Canada have determined that when an investigation is required in a workplace, especially around incidents of a sensitive matter (e.g. sexual harassment, racial discrimination, etc.), it is highly advised that a neutral third-party investigator be used. Evident provides experienced and knowledgeable investigators that fulfill the need for complete impartiality… Read More

Our people

The Evident staff makes up a team of individuals with distinct talents. Given the nature of the investigation business, we’re often involved in undercover investigations, court testimony and other sensitive practices that make identifying all our people impossible.
