The Canadian Payroll Association Logo.

Canadian Payroll Association

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 $730 billion in wages, $230 billion in statutory remittances, and over $80 billion in health and retirement benefits, while complying with over 185 federal and provincial legislative requirements.
