Canada is pretty great. We have a beautiful landscape, incredible talent, and awesome employers. Unfortunately, when it comes to the internet, Canadians are often overlooked.
Googling “best HR blogs”, or “best recruiting advice websites” brings up page after page of top 10’s and curated lists… All of them featuring predominantly American or UK based blogs.
Unfortunately, there simply aren’t a lot of Canadian blogs out there (relatively speaking), let alone Canadian blogs specifically geared towards HR.
But, what we lack in quantity, we make up for in quality!
I love Canadian blogs, especially the ones on this list:
BCjobs.ca’s Top 7 Canadian HR and Recruiting Blogs
HRVoice is HRMA’s online information centre.
This blog is a must read if you want to keep your finger on the pulse of Canadian human resources. They also post articles written by respected HR professionals.
Who doesn’t want to be part of an inner circle!?
HR Inner Circle shares articles from a variety of different sources with a focus on human resources news, ideas, and innovations.
Covering topics for both ends of the hiring spectrum, Randstad’s blog covers a wide range of topics.
You’ll find articles written for employers, recruiters, the HR department, and jobseekers, but what really sets Randstad apart is their special attention to women in the workplace.
Their series, Women Shaping Business, is a wonderful resource for women and anyone looking to promote diversity in the workplace.
Check out Can Women Really Have it All?
Dedicated to covering human resources news, opinion and analysis, HRM Online is pretty old school in their presentation. Their site resembles newspapers and print journals and the articles they publish are more formal in tone and delivery than typical blogs.
Personally, I find this approach refreshing and always feel smarter after paying HRM Online a visit.
Check out Preparing For a Less-Loyal Workforce.
This lovely blog is full of wisdom straight from HR expert Susan Wright-Boucher herself.
Susan’s writing is a pleasure to read, and her knowledge is evidenced in every one of her articles! This blog is a personal favorite for sure.

This is by far the prettiest blog on the list!
Talent At Work is run by Goldbeck Recruiting Inc., the blog focuses on recruiting and HR with a healthy dose of business advice and inspiration.
They also publish informative reports about the Canadian recruiting and workforce landscape that are definitely worth a read.
This blog isn’t technically a blog, but it is full of helpful advice for anyone looking to grow their organization.
The “recruiting resources” section of Open View Labs shares articles about hiring best practices, recruiting tips, and information about retention.
