Bill 32, the private member’s bill that would regulate members of the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) in a manner similar to accountants, has passed second reading in the Ontario legislature.

It provides HRPA members “long-sought recognition as true professionals,” said Liberal MPP Vic Dhillon during debate in the legislature on April 25.

“As business practices, economic conditions, workforce composition and employee expectations all become more complex and interrelated, so have the demands of the professionalism of HRPA members.”
