Entry Requirements

Students admitted into this program must have a minimum of a two-year diploma from a recognized post secondary institution, or equivalent. International students from a non English speaking country will be required to provide proof of a 6.0 IELTS or 80 IBT TOEFL result.

There will be two intakes a year. Courses are spread over four semesters, allowing students to engage in practicum/capstone projects while also offering working students a more manageable course load, meeting the academic needs of Canadian and international students.

Criminal Record Check

Practicum students must undergo a criminal record search, through the Ministry of Justice. The cost is your responsibility. A search which identifies relevant criminal convictions may prevent you from entering into a practicum placement, and may also impact job prospects in the field of Human Resource Management upon completion of the program.

Graduation requirements

In order to receive the diploma, students must pass each course and achieve an overall 2.67 GPA, or 68% (“B- ” grade) or higher.


The program curriculum is designed to ensure graduates have the knowledge necessary to obtain the designation. For more information, please see Chartered Professionals in Human Resources
