Kelly Aslanowicz
Senior Manager, Business Development

The Human Resources Management Association (HRMA) is your source for Human Resources information and services in BC and the Yukon. The Association is committed to providing leadership in HR excellence and, as the certifying body of the Certified Human Resources Professional (CHRP) designation in BC and the Yukon, is responsible for upholding industry standards.  HRMA is the largest HR association in Western Canada with more than 5,500 members and features an HR job board, professional development, research briefings, PeopleTalk magazine, and a variety of other programs and services.

The HR world is changing. We are seeing many experienced professionals retiring. Qualified candidates are becoming more mobile. Our workplaces are increasingly becoming multi-generational and multicultural. In this environment, innovation and inclusion are emerging as essential tools in attracting talent and competing  globally. In the past, HRMA has been involved in a number of provincial initiatives aimed  at building bridges between BC’s immigrant workforce and HR professionals. By participating in the Surrey LIP, the Association will bring the voice of HR professionals to the project as well as hear first-hand some of the concerns to lead to improved organizational understanding of immigrant labour market integration issues.
