Industrial Relations


Industrial Relations is an interdisciplinary program, enabling students in the Faculty of Arts to study Labour-Management Relations. Students take courses in Economics, Labour-Management Relations, and Sociology. These courses examine the economic and social forces affecting employer-employee relations.

Graduates from this program gain automatic access to the Order de Conseiller en Réssources Agrées (CRHA), a professional order that certifies human resource professionals in the province of Quebec. Proficiency in French is required for certification.

Graduates may find work in Industrial Relations, Human Resources, or Personnel Management. Some pursue graduate studies in Industrial Relations or Labour-Management Relations. Some go to Law school or Business school. Many find work outside the area of Labour-Management Relations in private industry or government.
