Become an Ambassador for the National Indigenous HR Professional Certification Project

AFOA Canada is calling on all AFOA Canada Members to be ambassadors for the National Indigenous Human Resources Professional (I-HRP) Certification Project.


Your help is needed to fill out the survey and increase the number of survey respondents by becoming a Project Ambassador. As an ambassador you can forward the survey link below and encouraging anyone who works or has worked in a Human Resources capacity to complete the survey.


The role of Human Resources Professional within an Indigenous community or organization is vital to the success of a growing Indigenous Public Service.  Managing staff talent is critical to an organization achieving its goals and objectives.  Too often a Human Resources Professional cannot be staffed within an Indigenous organization because of funding shortfalls.  This creates a gap of knowledge and skills needed to successfully manage human capital.

To address this capacity gap, AFOA Canada is creating the Indigenous Human Resources Professional Certification (I-HRP).  This certification will align with a broader market certification in Human Resource Management.


AFOA Canada is undertaking a Competency Survey to gather your views about the competencies that you think are needed to develop effective Indigenous Human Resources Professionals.


Fill out the survey before December 19, 2019 at 5:00 PM (EDT) and you will be entered into a draw for a prize.
