Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA)

The HRPA ensures that our 24,000 members and students have the most up-to-date tools and the advanced skills to lead our workplaces into the future. We regulate HR professionals in the public interest. Our members are held to the province’s highest standards, so Ontario workplaces can trust us to help unlock business growth and optimize employee potential.

HRPA designations were created to signal to clients and employers that an individual has the knowledge and expertise they need to excel in the HR profession. The framework below was developed to ensure that HR designations are as valued by organizations as those of other regulated professions.
