The Canadian Payroll Association and its members created national Payroll Week in 1995. The mission was to build awareness in the business and government sectors, and with the general public, on the vital and demanding role of payroll and the individuals who work in the profession.

Canada’s seventh annual National Payroll Week (NPW) is Sept. 17 to 21. Building on the success of last year’s program, NPW is expected to establish benchmarks for participation and recognition from coast to coast.

Payroll plays a vital role in the daily operation of an organization and, as last year’s national advertising campaign pointed out, helps make the “good things in life” possible. The nature of payroll is confidential; it is often a function that is performed in quiet confidence behind the scenes and it receives little attention in the workplace, even though it is mission critical with every person in the organization requiring a paycheque.
