Back to the Ministry of Government Services Summary page

The Human Resources Services Program supports the government's commitment to be a responsive and innovative world leader in customer service by having a skilled and innovative workforce. All HR service delivery programs focus on supporting the OPS in becoming an employer of choice - an organization able to attract and retain capable employees and having a diverse workforce who can deliver on government's priorities for Ontario's citizens.

HROntario is responsible for creating and sustaining the skilled workforce required to support modern, efficient public services and for building capacity so government can focus on and achieve its priorities. HROntario delivers integrated HR and business transformation services that support ministries' business objectives, and develops and implements strategies and policies that make the OPS an employer of first choice. The program also coordinates the internal security, and emergency planning and management for the OPS.

The Diversity Office supports the OPS' vision of being an inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible organization that delivers excellent public service and supports all employees in achieving their full potential. It is a center of excellence, providing strategic OPS-wide programs and services to ministries. It also provides advice about the diversity implications of policies, programs, communications, organizational development and change management.

The newly established Labour Relations Secretariat will have the capacity to analyze internal and external factors that drive collective bargaining outcomes in order to develop comprehensive strategies and provide guidance and advice related to bargaining. It will also provide oversight and strategic advice on OPS and Broader Public Sector (BPS) collective bargaining.
