FREDERICTON (CNB) - Health and Wellness Minister Elvy Robichaud, Minister Responsible for the Office of Human Resources, announced his support and recognition to Canada's eighth annual National Payroll Week which takes place Sept. 3-6.

Organized by the Canadian Payroll Association to recognize the efforts of payroll officers throughout the country, the week honours the professionals who ensure payrolls are met on time and with the appropriate deductions.

"We have about 53 payroll officers working for the provincial government managing a payroll and pension distribution of more than $800 million each year," Robichaud said "They produce nearly 60,000 T4s and T4As. We couldn't function without their accurate and professional work."

The minister also noted the ongoing work that payroll experts invest in staying on top of new technologies, legislative and tax changes and new work structures.

"I am pleased to support National Payroll Week and salute the consistently excellent work of these dedicated workers," Robichaud said.
