CPHR Canada keeps busy with government relations, partnerships

Overall, the past year has gone very well for Chartered Professionals in Human Resources (CPHR) Canada, according to Neil Coombs, chair of the board.

One of the biggest areas the association has worked on is government relations, in responding to federal government issues. These included pay equity and Bill C-65 around harassment and violence, says Coombs, who is also a partner and principal consultant at Higher Talent in St. John’s.
