HRPA2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show

The HRPA Virtual 2021 Annual Conference and Trade Show is the Association’s marquee event and Canada’s largest HR conference, attracting thousands of attendees each year.

This year, the virtual format will continue to bring together the HR community and provide HR professionals access to the latest trends, technologies, and best practices from some of the industry’s greatest thought leaders. We will continue to offer a stellar line-up of speakers and experts participating in keynotes, plenaries, and break-out sessions; plus, attendees, sponsors, and exhibitors will have even more opportunities to connect and engage colleagues from around Ontario.

HR Rebooted: Advanced HR in a World Disrupted

This conference will address the maturity, growth, and change we face and the opportunities to come:

  • Leading the charge, adapting to change, re-organizing and re-envisioning what the workplace is…and what it can be in the future.
  • Forefront of a societal re-awakening of human rights issues in the workplace. How fundamental values of equity, diversity and inclusion are integrated now will help dictate the workplaces of the future.
  • The HR profession is experiencing a fast-paced growth and maturity. It’s a re-birth of the value of what Human Resources means and how it’s defined.
