Embracing the Shifting Landscape of HR & Employment Law

For almost three decades, the HRPA Annual HR Law Conference has been the premiere must-attend event for HR professionals seeking to stay on top of changes to the HR law landscape. The HRPA 2021 Annual HR Law Conference will be offered online to enable all members across the province to attend, reflect on new challenges faced by HR professionals, and learn from the most experienced subject matter experts on HR law.

Today’s HR Professionals face constant demands of a disrupted world of work. More than a year into a global pandemic, businesses are returning their focus to pervasive workplace issues that directly impact employee wellbeing, engagement, and organizational performance.

We heard what you had to say about the format of HRPA Conferences; based on attendees’ feedback, we have revamped this conference to now run on two half-days, instead of one full day. Throughout the conference, participants will engage with and tackle some of the biggest issues facing organizations today and be equipped with tools and strategies to confidently lead their workplaces into a future that is fast changing.
