HR Thought Leadership

HRPA is committed to keeping its members at the forefront of HR thought leadership through HR Professional magazine, surveys, proprietary research, HR law updates, HR tools, podcasts and much more.

Resource Centre

RCHRPA’s powerful online HR knowledge base gives members instant access to the HR information and resources you need to do your job and succeed in your career.

Research and Surveys

Several times a year we explore ways in which the practice of human resources is changing, whether because of macroeconomic or geopolitical influences, application of new and game-changing technologies, or advancements in our understanding of human behaviour. Here is some of our recent work:

HRPA regularly asks its 20,000 members their opinion on a range of topics of interest to HR practitioners. Published regularly throughout the year, these surveys take "the pulse" of HR practitioners in Ontario and across Canada on matters of import to the profession. Your responses to these surveys help paint a picture of the state of the profession today and to map where it needs to go in the future.​​

HR Law

An exclusive service for HRPA members, HR Law is a portal for news, views and thought leadership related to labour and employment law. Articles are not meant as legal opinions and members are cautioned not to act on information provided through HR Law without seeking specific legal advice with respect to their unique circumstances.
