Canada plays a vital role in the North American market and the Western economy as whole for many multinational companies. Despite economic ties to its southern neighbors, Canada presents a significantly different labor and employment landscape that can create unique challenges for CHROs and labor relations executives with operations in the country. Challenges include an increasing array of worker protections that are often beyond the scope of what is required in the U.S. 

Further complicated by the country’s legal framework, HR management in Canada can leave much of the labor and employment lawmaking is in the hands of provincial and local government. This division of power often requires CHROs to be able to navigate disparate and changing labor and employment laws across the different jurisdictions within Canada itself. 

HR Policy Global is dedicated to helping CHROs and their teams stay ahead of developing trends in Canada. With a premium HR Policy Global membership, enjoy unlimited company-wide access to the program’s essential benefits.
