In furtherance of the mission of the Professional Investigators’ Association of British Columbia (“PIABC”) to promote a high standard of professionalism and ethics in private investigation, the PIABC has developed a certification program through which members and associate members who meet PIABC’s high standard of ethics, competence, and professional conduct are authorized to use the CCPI designation.
The CCPI is a Canadian Certification for licensed professional investigators granted for a three (3) year term. The license is renewable for another three (3) year term upon payment of a renewal fee and provided the required standards have been met.
