Canada’s premier hub for referring and training internal & external workplace investigators

The WORKPLACE INVESTIGATOR NETWORK (WIN) helps internal and external workplace investigators develop the skills they need to competently conduct an investigation with confidence.

WIN also provides organizations immediate referrals to qualified and trauma-informed investigators in Canada.

A workplace investigation poorly handled can be stressful and damaging to the investigator, organization and individuals involved. Unskilled and unqualified investigators exacerbate the problem. Far too often organizations do not see the need for workplace investigator professional development until there is an immediate need.

WIN is the go-to resource for workplace investigation training, mentoring, education, and networking.

WIN supports the professional development of internal and external workplace investigators through the delivery of industry recognized online and interactive training courses.

WIN provides investigators with 24-hour access to tools that help equip them to assess investigation issues efficiently and effectively.


WIN connects organizations (within 48 hours or less) with professionally trained and experienced investigators who can start immediately!
