The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) has been representing employers’ payroll interests since 1978, through its mission of Payroll Leadership through Advocacy and Education and its values of Community, Professionalism and Authoritative Knowledge.
Professional payroll administration is mission-critical because of the magnitude of the remuneration by employers and the breadth of the legislative compliance requirements.
Canada's 1.5 million employers count on payroll professionals to annually pay $830 billion in wages, $260 billion in federal and provincial statutory remittances, and $90 billion in health and retirement benefits, as well as produce 25 million T4s, 9 million T4As, and 7 million RL-1s - all while complying with over 191 federal and provincial regulatory requirements.
As the authoritative source of Canadian payroll knowledge, the CPA influences the operational, compliance and technology policies and processes of payroll service bureaus, software providers, hundreds of thousands of small, medium and large employers, as well as federal and provincial tax authorities. The CPA advocates on behalf of employers to federal and provincial governments, proactively influencing payroll-related legislation to enable all stakeholders to administer them in an efficient and effective manner.
As the source of payroll education and advocacy, the CPA delivers certification, professional development programs, and products and services that enable payroll practitioners to enhance operations, meet new legislative requirements and utilize emerging technologies.
