The Canadian Payroll Association was proud to host the 11th Annual PCP and CPM Certification Recognition Events across Canada this April. These events celebrate the success of our newly certified Payroll Compliance Practitioners (PCP) and Certified Payroll Managers (CPM). The events include lunch as well as speaker presentations on Association developments, the value of certification to personal and professional growth, and the importance of continuing professional education.

A growing community

Each year the Canadian Payroll Association recognizes a growing number of payroll professionals who have achieved the PCP and CPM, the only payroll certifications in Canada. The Association now has nearly 14,000 certified members! These professionals are leaders in payroll and personify the Canadian Payroll Association’s values of Community, Professionalism and Authoritative Compliance Knowledge.

Join us to celebrate YOU!

All certified members – whether new graduates or alumni - are invited to attend the PCP and CPM Certification Recognition Event in their area and receive an invitation via email.

Please note only new graduates are recognized during the event. You must indicate when you register that you are a new graduate who has not yet been recognized at a Certification Recognition Event.
