October 27, 2010

Dear Canpro HRservices Clients,

We are pleased to announce that the RCMP and CPIC offices in Canada have released a further update to Canadian Criminal Record Checks as of October 25.   

The new policy will provide clarity and allow Canpro to provide you, our client, with more information than was possible in the last 9 months.   We will be reviewing and implementing changes to our services and technology very soon.  Many of the favourable changes will be incorporated in our Canpro360 - EmployRite 2.0 software that will allow for new features, experience and efficiency.   Canpro HRservices and our police partners see the changes as ‘good news’ that enshrine these essential Human Resource services in Canadian Legislation.   

Further instructions will be forthcoming in the next few weeks, from the RCMP, on how we can specifically enable our clients to receive these additional services or information.    We look forward to providing you a further update and specifics when we know more.

Thank you in advance for your continued support.   Please feel free to call myself, your account representative or any of our staff if you have questions or need further information.

Yours Truly,

Ken Cahoon
Director & Managing Partner

Canpro Reduces Vulnerability to Workplace Violence

Are you an employer with operations in Ontario?  Did you know that your grace period to comply with new workplace violence legislation expired on June 15, 2010? Many employment lawyers are advising their clients to obtain an assessment regarding their vulnerability.  This is a trend gaining momentum nation-wide:

 Canpro Global, Canada’s original risk mitigation company, has current experience assisting employers of all sizes comply with Ontario’s changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Act with Bill 168.

Canpro mitigates the risk of violence towards employees.  We have the professionals, experience and resources to help with:

  • Compliance consultation and assessment
  • Pre-employment screening and background checks to identify applicants who might pose a risk in the workplace
  • Self-directed tools to simply and clearly assess the risk of various forms of violence in the workplace, including an examination of current policy & procedure, workplace physical design, local area threats, training and staff capacity to appropriately and safely respond to threats
  • Policy and procedure development that support a respectful workplace by effectively addressing harassment, bullying, workplace violence and the threat of domestic violence in the workplace
  • On-site threat management services for instances where a particular risk is identified or possible, or where high risk terminations are planned
  • Workplace ethics hotline, ConfidenceLine, allows an opportunity for stakeholders to anonymously report incidents or wrongdoing
  • Online and on-site staff development and training of trainers to enhance a safe and respectful workplace and prepare staff to safely identify and disengage from threatening risk events and individuals.  Includes individual modules on respectful workplace, conflict resolution, physical safety and disengagement, harassment, bullying, stalking and domestic violence, and discrimination in the workplace


Canpro has provided all these services to a wide variety of private and public sector clients since our inception in 1975.  We are offering to assist our customers with education and an immediate compliance measure in the ConfidenceLine ethics hotline service
