CCHRA UPDATE AND ENHANCEMENTS TO CHRP PROCESS
I am proud and excited to share with you that after some major changes, the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) is on the path to becoming a bolder, more agile, and profession-focused body. CCHRA is the national body that provides direction for all the provincial Human Resources member associations in administering the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation.
CCHRA is committed to a strong national body and clear vision for one designation – CHRP – as the leading standard of HR professional excellence and ethical standards in Canada. Beyond our borders, CCHRA is actively engaged with other countries’ HR organizations to proactively position Canada’s HR agenda and the CHRP designation at an international level. CCHRA recently signed two Memorandums of Understanding (MOUs), with the Australian Human Resources Institute and with the Hong Kong Institute of Human Resource Management.
More exciting news: This summer, CCHRA is implementing significant enhancements to the process of obtaining the CHRP. These changes will acknowledge the CCHRA-recognized education that prospective candidates have, and will provide a strong educational foundation and theory for practicing HR. Stay tuned for more detailed communication about these changes!
I can confidently say that the Saskatchewan Association of Human Resource Professionals as part of CCHRA, is dedicated to creating one voice, one national standard and maintaining one designation, the CHRP. Thank you for your commitment to the human resources profession. Together, we are working towards elevating the HR profession alongside other leading professions in Canada.
