President's Message - July 2019

This early spring has caused some crazy wildfires here in Alberta. We have lost thousands of acres of woodland, thousands of families have been displaced, and a number of houses destroyed. Please keep all of our First Responders and their families in your prayers. There will be lots of files open with all of the properties that were lost and lots of investigations, so everyone please stay safe when Investigating these files as there are dangers we need to keep in mind.

President's Message - March 2019

Happy Spring Everyone!

The executive and I have been working on updating our profile and will be launching a Facebook page shortly so we can provide information about who we are and what we do. This page is for all of us to comment on and place information on investigations happening within Canada that we are working on. We will also be launching a LinkedIn page also so that the same information can be shared around the world. These sites will be monitored by a couple of the executives so we can make sure the information getting out is correct and follows our policies.
