The National Payroll Week is held each year by one of Canada’s largest and most respected governing bodies The Canadian Payroll Association.
The association describes National Payroll Week with these words: “National Payroll Week (NPW) is the CPA’s largest annual public relations initiative. Now in its 17th year, NPW is designed to recognize the accomplishments of payroll professionals, the payroll community and the Association by building greater awareness of the size and scope of payroll and its impact on business, government and employees across Canada.”
Payroll Professionals from across the country, and in virtually every industry sector, participate in this annual event. The importance of payroll in a company should not be underestimated. After all, everyone who works for a living loves to get paid!
The Canadian Payroll Association goes on the say: “Canada’s 1.5 million employers count on payroll professionals to annually pay:
- $810 billion in wages and taxable benefits
- $250 billion in statutory remittances
- $90 billion in health and retirement benefits
- While complying with more than 191 federal and provincial regulatory requirements
- Payroll is mission-critical. Its size and scope impact business, government and employers across Canada from both a monetary and a business perspective.
- Payroll professionals are the key communications point for employees and management on salaries and benefits.
Payroll professionals are responsible for paying employees accurately and on time while complying with more than 191 federal and provincial legislative acts”.
