The industry's best and brightest will be celebrated at a lavish black-tie event
The HR community has spoken.
After receiving thousands of nominations over several months, HRD Canada can reveal the first finalists for the upcoming Canadian HR Awards, brought to you by Ultimate Software.
Further finalists will be announced on Wednesday.
Just one question remains: who will win?
All will be revealed at Toronto’s Liberty Grand on September 14, at a lavish black-tie awards ceremony attended by more than 600 HR professionals, and hosted by TV personality Ben Mulroney. Tickets are available now.
As well being a celebration of the best and brightest in Canadian HR, the Broadway-themed event will also feature a glamorous afterparty and charity auction in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society of Canada.
