 Fair Registration Practices Code

The Fair Registration Practices Code consists of Parts II and III of the Fair Access to Regulated Professions and Compulsory Trades Act, 2006.  The Fair Registration Practices Code was developed to ensure that the registration practices of professional regulatory bodies are transparent, objective, impartial and fair.

The Human Resources Professionals Association (​​HRPA) does not appear on Schedule 1 of the Act.  As such, HRPA is not subject to the Fair Access to Regulated Professions and Compulsory Trades Act, 2006, and is under no obligation to comply with the Fair Registration Practices Code.  Nonetheless, on June 26, 2009, the Board of Directors of HRPA passed a motion to the effect that HRPA would voluntarily comply with the Fair Registration Practices Code.

The Fair Registration Practices Code sets out a general duty to provide registration practices that are transparent, objective, impartial and fair and fifteen specific duties pertaining to various aspects of registration practices.

Review the specific text of the Fair Registration Practices Code.

The Fair Access to Regulated Professions and Compulsory Trades Act, 2006, also requires that every regulated profession undertake a review of its registration practices at times specified by the Fairness Commissioner to ensure that the registration practices are transparent, objective, impartial and fair and to file a report on the results with the Fairness Commissioner by the date specified by the Fairness Commissioner.

As noted above, the Fair Access to Regulated Professions and Compulsory Trades Act, 2006, does not apply to HRPA.  However, in the spirit of the Board motion to comply with the Fair Registration Practices Code, HRPA’s Office of the Registrar has prepared a report which follows the Guidelines for Fair Registration Practices Reports published by the Office of the Fairness Commissioner. 

Review the HRPA 2008 Fair Registration Practices Report ​

Just to be clear, this report was created by HRPA’s Office of the Registrar not by the Office of the Fairness Commissioner.  This report was not submitted to the Fairness Commissioner.
