Peer Council

Manufacturers’ Human Resource Council (MHRC)

OVERVIEW

Manufacturers’ Human Resource Council (MHRC) is an exclusive group of senior representatives and professionals from non-competing CME member companies responsible for labour, employment and human resource matters within their company.

MHRC is a forum for the confidential exchange of information on a wide range of current human resource management issues in both a union and non-union environment. Meetings are highly interactive and participants are expected to share their experiences on various topics to help the group resolve their challenges.
