Canada’s youngest province is now home to the country’s newest HR association.

The Association of Human Resources Professionals of Newfoundland and Labrador (HRPNL) was formed in February and officially welcomed into the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations (CCHRA) fold in May.

“We were looking for some way to advocate for and promote growth and development of the HR professional in Newfoundland and Labrador,” said Joe Bouzanne, president of the new association, and an HR instructor at the Grand Falls-Windsor campus of the College of the North Atlantic.
