The Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) is the only human resources designation recognized across nine professional human resources associations in Canada. The CPHR represents 27,000 human resources professionals practicing human resources in Canada.
The CPHR designation, formerly Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP), changed in October 2016 to align with industry expectations and provide assurance that a CPHR professional is best suited for business needs.
Why should you pursue the CPHR Designation?
Professional designations enhance career opportunities – the CPHR designation proves your ability to master all aspects of human resources and demonstrates to employers across Canada that you’re an HR expert.
Be a trusted advisor to your peers and employers – by achieving the CPHR Designation and adhering to CPHR National Code of Ethics you demonstrate that you are committed to the highest standards of professional practice in HR.
