Our Mission:

A regulatory Association that sets the standard of HR professionalism in the service of the public interest.


Our Vision:

We serve the public interest by advancing a flourishing HR profession.

At HRPA, we believe that well-run businesses are essential to a thriving society, and ours is no different. We strive to walk-the-walk and deliver an outstanding experience for all of our employees.

What We Believe

Our people are what inspire and drive us every day, and we work hard to bring a positive and rewarding experience to all employees. Our culture is founded on our core belief that “HRPA means better HR” and we root our daily actions and words in our shared values:


We treat others with dignity, care and inclusiveness. We listen, consider issues thoughtfully and respond with care. We value diversity of thought and engage others with sincere interest.


We are honest and do what we say. We can be trusted and relied upon to act with professionalism and deliver on our promises.


We are open and timely with information to our stakeholders. We solicit input and gather perspectives to inform effective decision making and we share our plans openly.


We take responsibility and answer for our actions. We take our role seriously and accept the privilege and obligations that come with being stewards of the profession.


We do the right thing. We hold ourselves to a high standard of moral principles and are committed to the higher purpose of protecting the public interest.

It’s Official, HRPA is a Great Place to Work® for another year.


We couldn’t be prouder that our employees have helped us achieve the Great Place to Work Certification for the sixth year in a row, as awarded by A Great Place to Work®. What this means is that HRPA is recognized as a great workplace for employees based on feedback from our team. And we remain committed to becoming an even better place to work through reporting, analysis and taking steps to further develop our culture.

HRPA is a Certified Living Wage Employer.

Certified Living Wage Employer Badge

The Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) is the professional regulatory association for the HR profession in Ontario. Our purpose is to protect and promote the public interest by governing and regulating the HR practice of our members, and ensuring our members and students have the most up-to-date tools and the advanced skills to lead workplaces into the future. Being a certified Living Wage Employer is a signal to our HRPA members, business leaders, and all organizations of our commitment to be a leader in workplace issues and HR practices. At the HRPA, we believe that better HR makes business better, and committing to living wages for all workers contributes to inclusive and equitable pay practices for everyone’s benefit.

“At HRPA, the leaders really take the time to listen, understand and – most importantly – act on any question I have. Many times, my Director has helped me to resolve an issue or answer my question. I am proud to say I work for HRPA and blessed to have such an amazing team. I cannot imagine myself working anywhere else!

“The atmosphere at HRPA is great. Mistakes are taken as lessons learned and we grow and get better together, instead of dwelling on it. This not only makes me feel valued as an employee, but I’ve also been able to grow more in my career. HRPA is constantly changing and evolving. It feels amazing to be a part of that growth.”
