Effective September 1, 2009, admission to the Diploma and Certificate in Labour Relations will be discontinued by Continuing Studies. Students enrolled in the diploma or certificate programs
prior to September 1, 2009
will be permitted to continue with the understanding that they must complete the requirements prior to September 2012, and that effective September 1, 2012, the Diploma and Certificate in Labour Relations be withdrawn and all registration discontinued.
Continuing Studies at Western, in partnership with the Faculty of Social Science, offers the Certificate in Labour Relations. Practitioners in the field of labour relations - union leaders and members, human resources professionals and labour and management representatives - will develop valuable new insights into the development of improved labour relations. Applicants who do not have a background in human resources and/or labour relations are advised to apply to the Diploma in Labour Relations.
All students will be admitted to the Certificate in Labour Relations according to the policies and guidelines for admission to the University. Non-UWO students must first apply to The University of Western Ontario through the Ontario University Application Centre in Guelph, Ontario. In addition, prospective students must also complete the application form for the Certificate in Labour Relations provided by Continuing Studies at Western. Application forms are available through Continuing Studies at Western. Students who are currently enrolled at UWO are only required to complete the Continuing Studies at Western application form.
