Recommended Workplace Resources

The Canadian Institute invites resources to list on our website!

These professional services meet our “GOLD STANDARD” requirements!

We want Employers, Organizations, and Individual Employees to have the best!

All our professional collaborators will be considered qualified by their training and hands on work experience. They consistently practice with a strong code of ethics, values, empathy, fairness, and timeliness. They will remain neutral and offer unbiased services, which demonstrate best practices. They will also contribute to filling in any gaps of knowledge, and ensure that organizations, leaders, and employees are prepared, and fully understand the processes involved with investigations. We also believe that all investigators must be trauma informed. Working on these cases will require a strong understanding of the complex nuances and needs of each participant. This includes being prepared, responding to various reactions and needs, decisions being made, and the delivery of the investigation outcomes. Especially when aware of existing psychological injuries. We believe it is essential to make appropriate recommendations for prevention and interventions and prevent further risks or harm. We all promote psychological safety in the workplace.

After testing the Track & Assess app for iOS and Android devices, we are happy to promote it as an excellent phone application for documenting workplace bullying evidence, tracking signs and symptoms, and for producing professional records for employees, leaders, investigators, human resources, OHS, Human Rights, Medical Teams, Unions, Insurance Companies, and more. This application decreases the time and energy required for keeping records. We all keep our phones close by, so this Track & Assess app helps with immediate note taking.
