Hi sk2205,
Your profile looks pretty good to get an admit in top 5 MBA schools in Canada. Although I must highlight the fact that you are a "typical" Indian candidate (IT engineer looking for an MBA). This fact is not a negative in any sense but it may subject you to competing with other similar profile candidates. Moreover, I am not too sure about scholarship. If you really want scholarship then I would recommend improving your GMAT score.
Most B-schools do not offer HR specialisation in Canada. I think only schulich has specialisation in Organisation Behaviour (broader term for HR). However, most schools do offer a lot of electives and you may load your electives accordingly. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help you anymore.

PS: Getting a job in HR would be difficult in your profile.
