CPHR Saskatchewan’s Mentorship Program provides the framework for members to be matched with other members for the purpose of enhancing professional development and building professional relationships in a meaningful and supportive way. These relationships enable program participants to exchange knowledge, develop skills and competencies, share experiences and build a community of thought partners. Whether you are new to the field of HR or a senior practitioner, the program can support you to expand, refine and build new skills.
This member-only program runs annually from January to December.
“Regardless of whether you’re a Mentor or a Protégé, joining the Mentorship Program is a great way to grow as an HR professional and connect with others in the field. You get as much out of it as you put into it and the relationships you develop continue for long after the program ends.”

“Both of my mentorship relationships have been invaluable. My mentors have taught me to push the boundaries of my comfort zone and seek leadership opportunities in areas I hadn’t thought of previously. The program keeps you accountable for doing your homework and being prepared to have meaningful discussions with your mentor. The feedback I received was invaluable. The program definitely helped me grow as a person and develop more confidence. In addition, you get to build long-lasting relationships with other HR professionals.”
Protégé – Regina
