Easter Region Banner

The Eastern Region College Committee on Human Resources Development (ERCCHRD) endeavours to provide relevant professional development and training opportunities to college faculty, support, and administrative staff in Eastern Ontario.

The collaborative efforts of members from Algonquin, Durham, Fleming, La Cité, Loyalist and St. Lawrence Colleges ensure the professional development needs at each participating college are met by sharing resources and information, providing an opportunity to recognize and showcase expertise, reducing the duplication of effort as well as allowing colleges to share costs.
