The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) has influenced the payroll compliance practices and processes of hundreds of thousands of employers since 1978. Its mission is Payroll Leadership through Advocacy and Education. Effective and efficient payroll administration is mission-critical given the magnitude of the payments made by employers and the breadth of the legislative compliance requirements. Payroll professionals, on behalf of Canada's 1.5 million employers, annually pay $730 billion in wages and benefits, $200 billion in remittances to the Canada Revenue Agency, $30 billion in remittances to the Ministère du Revenu du Quebec, and $80 billion in health and retirement benefits. In addition, payroll administers 25 million T4s, 8 million T4As, and 6 million RL-1s-all while complying with over 185 pieces of federal/provincial legislation and regulatory requirements.
