“Being an OMHRA member is an excellent way to connect with a vast network of municipal HR professionals from across Ontario.  OMHRA’s conferences, seminars, teleconferences, databases and e-mail alerts ensure I always have the latest information regarding legislative changes, trends in employment and labour law, collective bargaining data and municipal HR best practices.  Having such a great community of experienced municipal HR professionals is an invaluable resource for collaboration.”
