At the Head of the Class

Teaching the best in people practices is one thing, but walking that talk with your own staff is what makes these three schools stand out

So, you think you are a people-person and you want to make your mark in the human resources department? The good news is that there are lots of post-secondary HR programs to choose from in Canada. They offer the coursework (and applied work) to prepare you for a job, and if you want an HR designation, they will prepare you for that too. But how do you choose the one that’s right for you? 

Your Workplace has you covered with this second annual ranking of the best HR schools across Canada. Like last year, our top-ranked schools just happen to be in Ontario, our most populous province and, not surprisingly, the one with the most HR schools (almost 50 in total). The top four offer a co-op work placement in their degree programs, plus they teach courses in Canadian and provincial legislation — all important in the field of HR. Surprisingly, not all schools teach this legislation. So, no matter where you choose to go, ensure that this topic is included in the curriculum.
