Celebrating HR Excellence
Our designated members, Certified Human Resources Professionals, Leaders and Executives, demonstrate thought leadership in their workplaces every day. Each year we celebrate these contributions through our Awards of Excellence which are presented at the Great Places to Work Awards gala each April. Nominations for these awards opens in September.
Serving our Members knowledge needs
We meet the knowledge needs of our members and the public in a number of ways. We publish
HR Professional, the largest circulation HR magazine in Canada published eight times a year. Widely recognized for its editorial excellence, it is a must-read for those interested in emerging HR trends and HR best practices.
Annual Conference (celebrating its 75th anniversary in February 2017) is the largest HR conference and trade show held outside the U.S. Over three days, we bring thought leaders from across the globe to inform members and the public about the most recent concepts, theories and approaches to HR practice. In plenary sessions seating over 3,000, in more than 130 seminars, and with over 250 exhibits of the newest products and services, there is nothing quite like HRPA's Annual Conference and Trade Show.
