ADP was founded by two entrepreneurs in 1949 and they were one of the very first companies to offer American companies the option of outside payroll processing. ADP Canada started in 1979 and was initially a joint venture between the Bank of Montreal and ADP. Today, ADP Canada is a wholly owned subsidiary of ADP and they further acquired the payroll services division of ScotiaBank in 1996 and the payroll services operation of the Royal Bank of Canada in 1997, which doubled the company’s size. ADP.ca further details how the company purchased a European-based organization called GSI in 1996 which allows ADP Canada to add HRMS (Human Resource Management Solutions) to their services.
