Through this blog we will be in contact with you to answer any question or confusion you might have about a holiday. With different holidays in Provinces and different work place holiday rules, it can get confusing.
Statutory Holidays can be confusing for bother employees and HR. Many times new employees have showed up at work on day off. There are many funny stories of co-workers pulling a prank on someone and taking advantage of the confusion surrounding some of the Stat Holidays. Understanding your province’s active stat holidays is essential for scheduling, administering payroll and saving face.
There are 15 recognized statutory holidays across the provinces, but only 5 of those are national holidays that are recognized by every province and territory. The 5 national statutory holidays are:
- New Year’s Day (Jan 1st)
- Good Friday (Friday before Easter Sunday)
- Canada Day (July 1st)
- Labour Day (1st Monday in Sept)
- Chrismas Day (Dec 25th)
The only exception to these national holidays is in Quebec, where Easter Monday is recognized as a holiday along with Good Friday (more on that here). Easter Monday is not recognized as a holiday by any other province.
