Details on Canadian Payroll Processing

Payday

In Germany  salaries are usually paid at the end of the month. In Canada salaries can be paid weekly, twice a month or monthly. Employees in Canada usually expect payments twice a month.

Statutory Accident Insurance

In many cases, employees and companies must register with the provincial statutory accident insurance schemes and pay contributions (e.g. Workplace Safety & Insurance Board - WSIB in Ontario).

The contributions depend on the size of the company, the sector and the activities of the employees in the individual case.

EHT

The Employer Health Tax (EHT) is an income tax based on the remuneration of employees and former employees. We support you in registering and calculating the EHT of the province.
