For the first time, HR professionals in the Yukon can become full members of a provincial HR association.

The Yukon formally became the eighth membership region of the Vancouver-based British Columbia Human Resources Management Association (BC HRMA) as of Jan. 1, and it is the first one located outside the province.

About 75 Certified Human Resources Professionals (CHRPs) and HR specialists in the Yukon joined the association as full members at the beginning of 2013, said Lee Vincent, assistant vice-president of human resources at Northwestel in Whitehorse.
