About the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA)
- The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) has influenced the payroll compliance practices and processes of hundreds of thousands of employers since 1978. As the authoritative source of Canadian payroll knowledge, the CPA affects the legislative processes and practices of payroll service and software providers, as well as hundreds of thousands of small, medium and large employers.
- 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 $928 billion in wages and taxable benefits, $313 billion in federal and provincial statutory remittances, and $177 billion in health and retirement benefits, as well as produce 26 million T4s, 9 million T4As, and 7 million RL-1s - all while complying with over 200 regulatory requirements.
