Depending on the size of your agency and the work you do, there may be some trainings that you must complete based on Ontario legislation.

Below, you’ll find some examples of legislated trainings, which might be required for your organization:

If you are a member of the Ontario AIDS Network, your organization has access to HR Downloads, a repository of important modules and training resources:

  • WHMIS 2015 including the GHS for Workers and Supervisors Training
    • – if do not have access to HRdownloads, need to create and provide some training material to new hires at orientation
  • Workplace Violence and Harassment Training for Employees (Bills 168 and 132)

…and many more.


What does this mean locally / at your organization?

As part of preparing for your orientation, your supervisor can connect with the Ontario Provincial Resource for ASO Human Resources (OPRAH) to confirm required training and possible sources.

We suggest you chat with your supervisor and/or colleagues and learn about the following:

  1. What are the organizational practices around completing these or other legislatively required training?
  2. Are there sector wide opportunities to meet these requirements?
  3. Are there required trainings based on my particular role?


Core Curriculum training

While no HRO Core Curriculum exists, some training is available for free online and the OAN may provide access to required trainings through a group membership such as HR Downloads or similar resource.
