Download the Executive Summary of our 2011 Inquiry into the State of HR in Canada

In 2011, the Queen's University Industrial Relations Centre (IRC) began a longitudinal, practitioner-focused research project that explores the state of the HR profession in Canada. Now, as part of this on-going project, we are following up with a second survey.

Our online survey probes the role of the HR function in Canadian organizations, including the skills and knowledge that are deemed essential for practitioners, and the priorities and challenges for the profession. The purpose of the survey is to better understand and describe the current and perceived future state of the human resources profession in Canada.

The survey is divided into two sections. In the first section, we ask demographic questions that will help us to better understand the varied roles and responsibilities of Canada's HR practitioners. In the second section, we seek perspectives on the HR profession.

We invite you to participate in our survey and share your insights on the HR profession in Canada. Our survey will close on April 5, 2013.

Should you have any questions regarding our practitioner-focused research, please contact Alison Hill.

>>This survey is now CLOSED.
