The CPA's Certification Programs
The Canada Payroll Association (CPA) offers the only payroll certifications in Canada: the Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) and the Certified Payroll Mananger (CPM). These programs prepare payroll practioners 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 decisions.
GPRC Continuing Education has partnered with the Canadian Payroll Association to offer the Payroll Compliance Practitioner
