Effective human resource management is one of the most critical factors leading to the success of an organization and to the economic growth of PEI. Our people are our greatest resource.
In September 2017, the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Association of Prince Edward Island (CPHR PEI), a newly formed not-for-profit corporation, was officially launched.
The Association is the exclusive granting body on PEI of the nationally recognized Chartered Professional in Human Resources (CPHR) designation, which is the leading standard for HR professionals in Canada.
Individuals carrying this designation are on par with other leading professional groups including accountants, engineers, and lawyers. The CPHR Competency Framework outlines 44 professional competencies organized in nine functional areas of knowledge that individuals must know to earn their designation.
Continuing professional development is a requirement for all professionals, further demonstrating the commitment toward staying current with leading practices and the ethical management of today’s human capital.
Our members make a significant impact across all sectors on PEI. Members include CEOs, VPs, Directors of HR, HR Generalists, HR Advisors, Consultants, educators, students, and small-business owners.
At this time, our Board is focused on building the membership, providing professional development opportunities, engaging with those working in the field of human resources, and building the human resources community here on PEI.
Membership with CPHR PEI is open to all individuals who work, or have an interest, in the field of human resource management.
