Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) Certification Programs
The Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) offers the only payroll certifications in Canada: the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) and the Certified Payroll Manager (CPM). These programs prepare payroll practitioners to manage the compliance requirements of an organization's annual payroll cycle, deliver clear and reliable payroll information, and contribute a payroll perspective to organizational policy and strategy discussions.
For all Payroll programs and courses, students are required to register with the Canadian Payroll Association and pay their associated fees. Students in our full time offering qualify for a student rate with the Association.
