Description:This one-year Ontario College Certificate program provides students with the knowledge and skills required to process and record day-to-day financial transactions and perform related business activities. Bookkeeping and payroll clerks enter the data that causes bills and employees to be paid and cash to be collected from customers. They also support accountants and managers by providing the basis for information used in business to make decisions, control performance and plan activities.

Students identify and apply business processes by maintaining paper and computerized financial records, such as entering purchases, payments, sales, collections and payroll. Employing commonly used accounting software and spreadsheet tools, students practice the skills to work effectively in a variety of accounting and bookkeeping roles.
