Less than a week left until Garda Background Screening Solutions announces new company name

2016 was an exciting journey for us at Garda Background Screening Solutions. We established partnerships with numerous new clients, launched improved mobile-friendly interfaces for both our candidate and client websites, recruited new talent within our ranks and we ended the year on a high note by being acquired by the internationally-renowned Mintz Group, a leading due diligence, investigation and background screening firm.

We do not intend 2017 to be any less exciting – quite the contrary. We are thrilled to tell you that we will be officially announcing our new company name on February 1st. This brand change will usher in a new chapter in our story where we will pursue further international growth while continuing to constantly promote operational expertise in Canada, uphold best practices, and keep pushing the boundaries of technological innovation in the background screening industry.
