COVID-19/CPHR Manitoba Update

May 20, 2020  

CPHR Manitoba has always been focused on providing the highest level of support to our members, and since the pandemic that focus has not changed. We remain committed to our vision of advancing the human resource profession, moving our organization forward, and working to meet our strategic goals. 


As we are coming to the end of our fiscal year, CPHR Manitoba has been busy planning for 2020-2021. With so many uncertainties surrounding the pandemic, planning for this upcoming year is requiring us to be nimble, creative and to keep our eyes and ears open to ensure we’re meeting member needs. Over the past few months, staff have been working on a new strategic plan for CPHR Manitoba to continue to advance the human resources profession (approved by the Board in May 2020), and we are happy to share that with you today. The strategic plan is based on three pillars:

  1. Promote the CPHR brand
  2. Support CPHR development
  3. Foster public confidence in CPHRs

These pillars will guide the long-term direction for the organization and serve as the foundation for annual business plans going forward. 


CPHR Canada is bringing together for the first time ever the nine provincial and territorial HR associations for  RE:ENTRY - Empowering Your People in a Post-Pandemic Workplace that will teach you how you can get your people back to work, because it's the people who will see us through this uncertain time. This is a must-attend revolutionary event for anyone looking for advice, knowledge and skills to get their organization back on track. More information related to COVID-19 can be found on the resource page on our website. This page is updated regularly with articles, webinars, and information relating to new announcements about government support. 


If you haven’t already done so, just a friendly reminder that it’s time to renew your CPHR Manitoba membership. You need to renew your membership before May 31 to avoid the late fee and reinstatement fee. Membership renewal is also payable by May 31, 2020 in accordance with CPHR Manitoba Bylaw 3, however, due to the circumstances of COVID-19, we understand that timely renewal payments may be challenging for some members and employers. If you require a payment extension or payment plan, please contact Stephanie Smith, Membership Engagement Coordinator, at by May 31.


A couple of the workshops we had originally planned for March and April have been rescheduled as virtual programs in June. Visit our website to find out more about the Psychological Health & Safety in the Workplace Conference and the Coach Approach to Leadership Workshop. We are also adding new webinars on a regular basis. Please stay tuned for more information regarding other CPHR Manitoba events.


CPHR Manitoba has also been operating business as usual. Staff continue to work remotely until further notice but are still available by phone and email. HR professionals have a crucial role in helping organizations manage this ongoing pandemic, and we are committed to supporting you in any way we can. 


We’re all in this together, and our community will only grow stronger as we continue to face these challenges. Stay safe and be well.
