About Us

Since 1965, the Centre for Industrial Relations and Human Resources has brought together professors from many different disciplines and departments at the University of Toronto to teach and conduct research on all aspects of the workplace and employment relationships. The CIRHR faculty reflect the depth, breadth, and diversity of our university.

The CIRHR is located in a historic home with administrative and faculty offices, an on-site Library, student computer facilities, study space and a classroom. CIRHR Buildings Through the Ages tells the rich history of our buildings, past and present, including connections to notable Canadians like Group of Seven artist, Lawren Harris, and Ontario Premier, George Howard Ferguson.

As part of the St. George (downtown) campus, the CIRHR is within a five-minute walk to the University of Toronto Robarts Library and Information Commons, the Rotman School of Management, the Faculty of Law, U of T’s Athletic Centre, and Graduate Student Residence, as well as the St. George Subway.
