Unlike other agencies who may or may not be actively involved in day to day operations, CANGUARD is actively working on files in the field day to day so we understand the challenges for our clients and our private investigators. We encourage you to do your due diligence and please compare what we are offering to any other Private Investigator Providers and you will discover that CANGUARD is not only focused on delivering exceptional online training but practical, real training as well so you will be prepared for the industry.


  • All training candidates have access to the course for up to one year online.
  • We offer a 50 question multiple choice practice test like the exam.
  • All training candidates have access to an 800 line to talk to the online facilitating company for any technical problems or questions regarding the course.
  • Live 24/7 Chat and Classroom forum to communicate with other candidates.

Exam Preparation

Before writing the exam, we do a telephone review with the candidate to identify any weak spots to ensure that they have met our satisfaction.

Tools of the Trade

We prepare candidates for the industry on a one-on-one basis to tell them what tools (E.g. Covert Camera Equipment, Pinhole Camera with Portable DVR, Spy Pen, GPS Hardware and Tracking, etc.) they must have and we can supply them at wholesale costs.


As a Private Investigator Agency, we can hire successful candidates or refer you to several Agencies across Ontario. Beware of other agencies who guarantee jobs.

Our Promise

For a candidate who has a lot of promise and scores 80% or better in their exams, we will offer additional practical field surveillance for one day at no additional charge.
