National payroll week acknowledges the dedication and hard work that payroll professional do to keep Canada paid – Today, Tomorrow, and every day. As payroll professionals we keep 1.5 million employers compliant with 190 federal and provincial regulatory requirements that are always changing. These employers count on payroll professionals to annually pay:
- $860 billion in wages and taxable benefits
- $268 billion in statutory remittances
- $94 billion in health and retirement benefits
This year there were 28 events held around the country, and each year the CPA organizes for a guest speaker to come in a talk to all of us. This year the presentation was on “Managing Time. Managing Compliance. Managing Life: Finding Your Focus in a Fast-Paced World” This is very important to us as payroll professionals, we need to make sure we are hitting all of our deadlines, along with meeting federal and province guidelines, as well as have a work life balance.
We just want to thank all of the awesome sponsors we have to make National Payroll week possible.
