Phone: (306) 301-0172

The Human Resources Special Interest Group is a forum that brings together human resources professionals (or those in a small organization where human resources is part of your role but you have had no formal training) to discuss best practices, emerging trends, and economic challenges relating to hiring in the manufacturing sector.  These discussions are group-led and faciliated by Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters (CME), with groups in Regina and Saskatoon

"The HR SIG brings together a wealth of human resources knowledge by sharing a wide range of ideas, experiences, and issues.  It is an informal atmosphere with friendly professionals that I am proud to be a member of.
