Welcome to the Human Resources Professionals Association Northwestern Ontario Chapter
The Mission of the Human Resources Professionals Association of Northwestern Ontario (HRPANO) is to ensure opportunities for professional development and growth; provide opportunities for networking and mutual support to those interested in human resource practices in our region; and to recognize contributions to and value of the human resource profession.
In January 2016, the Northwestern Ontario Chapter was thrilled to receive two Chapter of Excellence awards from HRPA! The Excellence in Growth award recognizes us for being the Chapter with the highest percentage of net growth in all of Ontario and the Excellence in Engagement award recognizes us for our commitment to ensuring we are an effective ambassador of member engagement with the HR profession.
The HRPANO has a long history in Northwestern Ontario and is one of twenty-eight chapters which make up the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA). There have been 31 Presidents since 1972.
