NPW at a Glance

National Payroll Week™ (NPW) began in 1995. Now in its 23rd year, NPW aims to build awareness of the role, size and scope of payroll professionals in the business, government and academic communities, and with the general public. Last year, more than 3,000 people attended an NPW event and our ‘Canadians Living Pay Cheque to Pay Cheque’ media campaign reached an audience of over 250 million.

National Payroll Week celebrates the valuable compliance work that Canada’s payroll professionals perform to make sure employees are paid accurately and on time, every time.

This year, the Canadian Payroll Association’s NPW campaign will celebrate all the payroll professionals who keep Canada paid. Join us at one of our many events to celebrate payroll, take in the latest findings from this year’s NPW surveys, and hear from exceptional motivational speakers.

Check the Events Across Canada section of this website for NPW event information and registration.
