Human Resources Management


The streamlining of many routine functions in human resources has created a growing need for highly trained professionals with the skills to plan, hire, train, manage, retain, and develop tomorrow's workforce. Professionals in human resources management must be involved in the strategic planning process, handle legal and ethical issues, manage finances, serve as in-house consultants on organizational behaviour, and act as change managers. Our certificate in Human Resources Management provides a core of courses addressing the functional areas of human resources. Students may enrol in individual courses without applying for the certificate. This program can be completed in its entirety through distance learning.

Note: Students have up to 7 years to complete all requirements.

You may enroll in a Continuing Education course at Canadore College if you are 19 years of age or older or if you have earned an Ontario Secondary School Diploma/Ontario Secondary School Graduation Diploma or equivalent.

Most college level courses require textbooks; textbooks are not included in the course fees. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase any required textbooks.

Textbooks are available at the Campus Shop for in class, Contact North, and iLearn/D2L courses. The Campus Shop does not carry most OntarioLearn textbooks. OntarioLearn textbooks can be purchased at
