A Private Investigator in Ontario, Canada conducting an investigation.

True Reliable Investigations Ontario Inc. (T.R.I.O. Investigations) is Northern Ontario’s preferred Investigation Agency and is the only company based in Sudbury. We provide surveillance and investigative services to the insurance, corporate, and legal sectors, as well as private individuals to serve everyone's needs. The President, Chris Dowdall, has a reputation for offering consultations with integrity, then if needed, quality service.

Being based in the center of Northern Ontario where there are numerous remote communities where everyone knows each another, T.R.I.O. Investigations is specialized in conducting rural and country surveillance. While other companies based in Southern Ontario (in congested cities), parachute inexperienced people to the North who try to conduct surveillance in the same manner as they would in a city environment. Our company has proven results based from a knowledge of the area and local contacts in several small communities and reservations across the North. As such, we will save you time and money in getting the evidence you need.

The company is led by Chris Dowdall who has over 25 years experience as a Private Investigator. With this experience, Chris trains, supervises and continually evaluates all employees, ensuring that the company continues to provide top quality results to its clients.

Every company, large or small, and every person will encounter difficult situations at one time or another. When this occurs, experts are needed to establish the truth, gather and secure all the evidence possible, protect assets, and ensure the facts are presented with integrity and in a professional and credible manner.  During such times of conflict, the services of a reputable private investigation agency will provide a solution and a way forward to solve the problem. 


T.R.I.O. Investigations is known to have very high ethical and professional standards. Rather than simply billing out budgets, our company focuses on achieving the best possible results for our clients. Specifically, we aim to protect the rights of Insurance companies that allow claims to be assessed fairly, ensure good faith dealings, and ultimately lead to proper settlements.

Our company provides the client with professional, detailed reports, as well as photographic, and video evidence in a cost-effective and timely manner, while adhering to industry confidentiality and integrity standards.
