Canadian Payroll Association seminars help build pension and benefits compliance knowledge

TORONTO, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - As more baby boomers leave the Canadian workforce, employer pension and benefit plans are increasingly being relied upon to provide retirement income. Organizations must follow legislative requirements ─ from enrolment right through retirement ─ to mitigate the risk of non-compliance, says the Canadian Payroll Association.

"Pension and benefit plans have their own legislation and reporting requirements and significant risks and penalties for non-compliance," says Janet Spence, Manager, Compliance Services and Programs for the Canadian Payroll Association. "With frequent changes to legislation and regulations, employers must safeguard against unnecessary and costly compliance errors."

The Canadian Payroll Association offers pension and benefits seminars for accounting, payroll, finance and human resources professionals who recognize the value of pension and benefit compliance knowledge. Seminars across Canada are open to Association members and non-members at all levels.
