What We Do
Qualified, licenced investigators complete unbiased and thorough evidence-based investigations. We utilize proven trauma-informed methodologies to develop information and identify the root cause of issues within organizations. With more complete information, our clients' internal or external counsel can deliver more meaningful legal opinions. In turn, business leaders can make better informed decisions. In the end, all participants in an investigation will have been respected and heard and our clients' issues resolved.

We Grew Out of a Need for Better Investigating
Recognizing the absence of qualified investigators available to successfully complete complex, confidential investigations, founder Jeff Bzowey launched Root Resolutions to meet the demands of corporations, sports organizations, and educational institutions.
All of our investigators are licensed by the Province of Alberta, hold at least one internationally recognized professional investigation certification, and hold a university degree. We keep our skills current with ongoing professional education - a commitment to excellence and genuine passion for what we do. We also pride ourselves on being effective communicators who put people at ease and listen to what stakeholders have to say. Our demonstrated competence and strong interpersonal skills earn us the trust of those we speak with. This allows us to develop critical information that others have missed. In short, we effectively identify issues and exposures, then efficiently resolve concerns through a carefully curated process of prevention, detection, investigation, and correction.
Our Commitment to Care
All of our investigators follow a trauma-informed methodology when addressing victims, whistleblowers, respondents, and other stakeholders. We recognize the impact that experiencing or witnessing unethical behaviour can have on individuals, as well as the additional stress that comes with speaking up. We will always strive to create an environment of safety, foster collaborative and transparent partnerships, and acknowledge the relevance of diverse backgrounds and cultural needs.
