Government relations high on CPHR Canada’s agenda

Recently, CPHR Canada has been focusing its efforts on two areas that somewhat overlap: research and government relations.

“In terms of being able to influence policy and be there to be the voice of the HR profession in Canada, one of our goals was to try to make those connections with government, to provide them with information as to who we are, what we do, what our members can offer, and also make sure that we’re engaging in different aspects, like researching topics of interest so that we can provide that information for our members, but also for government to consider and look at,” says Shannon Railton, chair of the Vancouver-based association.
