Payroll Professional Program National Payroll Institute Designation Programs

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

The National Payroll Institute (formerly known as Canadian Payroll Association) offers the only payroll designations in Canada: Payroll Compliance Practitioner (PCP) and Payroll Leadership Professional (PLP). These programs prepare payroll practitioners 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 discussions.

Payroll is a fast-growing field; those holding Payroll designations benefit from more opportunities to advance their careers and earning potential. In other words, those with Payroll designations earn higher salaries than those who do not.
