At Canadian HR Reporter, we’re always trying to expand and improve the way we bring HR professionals and employers the information they need. In fact, our mantra for 2010 and beyond is to deliver news and information to you in whatever format you desire.

With that in mind, there will be plenty of news to announce during the course of the year. But it’s time to take the cover off three new initiatives we’ve been working hard on because, after all, good things always come in threes.

Canadian Safety Reporter

First up is the launch of Canadian Safety Reporter, a national occupational health and safety publication. (If you’re the first person to get your hands on this issue of Canadian HR Reporter, you’ll find a free copy inside.) Its mandate is to be a high-level information resource for occupational health and safety (OHS) leaders.

The publication will examine strategic issues in employee health and safety, provide case studies of employer initiatives and programs, track legislative and regulatory changes across Canada, report on legal cases (including an opportunity to send questions to our “Ask the Expert” panel), cover news and trends, share industry insights and point readers to OHS resources.

A subscription to Canadian Safety Reporter includes the monthly print newsletter, an enewsletter and access to its website — The website is a dynamic part of the publication, featuring daily news posts, videos on health and safety issues, webinars, books, events, job postings and more.

Take a minute to explore the website. And, for a limited time, you can receive an annual subscription for just $79 — $20 off the regular price.

Your Toughest HR Question

If you had a chance to attend the Human Resources Professionals Association’s annual conference in Toronto this year, you probably noticed groups of people at the Thomson Reuters/Canadian HR Reporter booth posing questions to our experts.

We’ve compiled the best questions from the conference and will be answering them in a new feature entitled, “Your Toughest HR Question.” In every issue, in the space right below this column, some of the best minds in HR across Canada will tackle real-life questions and problems faced by employers.

Andrew Treash, a product writer for Consult Carswell, kicks off this new feature with his column below.

And don’t worry — you don’t have to attend a conference to pose a question. You can send questions directly to me at We will try our best to answer all questions, and select the most interesting ones for publication. So keep your eyes on this page. There will be a wealth of useful information throughout the year.

Canadian HR Law with Stuart Rudner

We’re raising the curtain on a brand-new online employment law show. Canadian HR Law is a monthly talk show hosted by Stuart Rudner, a partner at Miller Thomson in Toronto and one of the most respected employment lawyers in the country. Rudner has been involved in numerous high-profile cases, even appearing at the Supreme Court of Canada in the groundbreaking Keays v. Honda case.

This engaging program is must-watch TV for HR professionals and employers. Each episode will include a review of recent legal developments, an in-depth interview with someone from the HR world and “Just Cause Roundup” — where Rudner takes a look at recent court cases.

You can view the first episode on Canadian HR Reporter TV by going to our website,

For more than 20 years, Canadian HR Reporter has been growing with, and advocating for, the HR profession. We’ll continue to push the envelop to bring you the information you need at work and in your career. We hope you like these recent changes. Stay tuned — there’s more to come.
