|What is CPHR|
The Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) formerly known as the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation is a nationally recognized level of achievement within the field of human resources. It reflects a conviction that the professional practice of human resources management can safeguard the interests of employers, employees and the business community. The designation represents continuing recognition of the bearer's professionalism.
Following an approach taken by national HR associations in the UK, USA, Australia and South America, the CPHR designation, awarded to qualifying HR practitioners, has been in existence in Canada since the early 1990's.
Although the purpose, characteristics and qualifications of this designation were relatively common, each province, under the direction of a provincial HR association, was responsible for setting certification standards and granting CPHR designations. HR professionals have quickly recognized the need for a more national profile and portability of the CPHR designation. In March 2003, a national CPHR certification program, managed by Chartered Professionals in Human Resources of Canada (CPHR Canada) and administered by the provincial HR associations, became a reality.
CPHR Saskatchewan is the exclusive granting body of the CPHR designation in the province of Saskatchewan. Currently, there are over 600 CPHRs in the province.
