Private Investigator in British Columbia

The westernmost province of Canada, British Columbia is the 3rd most populous with 4.4 million people, and the 5th largest in terms of total area. More than half of the province’s population resides in the Greater Vancouver area, the third-largest metropolitan area in the nation and the second-largest in the entire Pacific Northwest, including Oregon and Washington. British Columbia is the endpoint of many of the transcontinental railways as well as the home to several international ports, making it a hub for international trade and commerce. Its natural resources are its main export, but Vancouver is known as Hollywood North as it is the third-largest film production region in the world, behind Los Angeles and New York City. Crime rates in Canada are determined using the Crime Severity Index (“CSI”), which measures both the seriousness – determined by harshness of sentencing – and the volume of crimes reported. British Columbia ranked third highest on the CSI in 2011, and is among the worst in drug offenses, but among the best in homicide rates. With such a high CSI, however, it is evident that there is a great deal of investigative work to be done. By hiring a private investigator such as those licensed in the ICS global network, you can be sure that a highly skilled, experienced professional is dedicated to your case around the clock.
