For over 40 years the National Payroll Institute has been the voice of payroll in Canada – helping to improve business efficiency, shaping policy and legislation, sharing essential information and resources, and providing education and training to help members play an integral role in success and strategic transformation of their organizations. Whether you’re a large corporation or a new entrepreneur, we have a membership to fit your needs and help your payroll and business run smoothly.
Together we advance the profession through industry leading events, advocacy initiatives and shared aspirations. Members also have the opportunity to contribute to the Institute as subject matter experts and volunteers, participating on committees, contributing to advocacy initiatives, and joining a Local Branch, Regional Council or the Board of Directors.
Members have exclusive access to the National Payroll Institute’s payroll InfoLine – a hotline staffed by Canada’s leading experts. If you ever have a payroll compliance related question, phone or email the InfoLine team and you’ll have an answer you can trust. With a National Payroll Institute membership, you won't spend time deciphering through regulations - that's our job!
As a payroll professional, you have to navigate over 200 different pieces of legislation. That’s not easy. By working together with members, and sharing your collective voice with policy makers, we make sure that governments across Canada keep payroll impacts, top-of-mind.
