Self-Regulation Now Available for Chartered Professionals in Human Resources
Today, the Government of Saskatchewan introduced The Saskatchewan Human Resources Profession Act that will establish the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Saskatchewan as a self-regulating body.
“Our human resource professionals already hold themselves to very high standards,” Labour Relations and Workplace Safety Minister Don Morgan said. “But introducing this Act gives the Chartered Professionals in Human Resources Saskatchewan the right to self-regulate and hold their members accountable for their actions and will only help to improve the level of service provided to employers, workers and their families.”
The Act establishes two levels of regulation:
- registration for members; and
- certification for those who wish to pursue the Chartered Professional in Human Resources designation.
The legislation does not provide for licensure.
Ontario and Quebec are the only two provinces in Canada that currently recognize a self-regulating body for human resources professionals.
