How are they selected?

From time to time, the SDRCC launches calls for applications to recruit new investigators. Candidates are selected by the Advisory Committee based on several criteria, including their valid qualification as investigators in their province/territory of practice, their expertise and experience in investigation services, their background/training in a relevant field (law, human resources, etc.) and their knowledge of the Canadian sport system. If you are interested in joining the Investigation Unit, stay tuned for the next calls for applications. They will be published on this page.

List of Investigators

The Investigation Unit currently includes 26 investigators, of whom four are perfectly bilingual. Together, they cover eight provinces and territories: Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island and Quebec.

An investigator from Maine has also been selected and trained to act as a resource-person when a portion of an investigation must take place south of the border.

Practicing lawyers are authorized to conduct investigations nationwide. In accordance with the laws of each province/territory, investigators who are not lawyers may be or become authorized to conduct investigations in jurisdictions other than those from which they obtained their credentials.
