Canada this year falls on a Saturday. We are open 7 days a week and plan on closing Saturday July 1st. Do we have to offer staff who typically do not work on Saturday the Friday or Monday?


They should make Family Day a Federal holiday. Its too long in between from Christmas to the next holiday which is Easter. Days are long and i do think that everyone deserves this break


We have a small business where the employees select their working hours. None of the employees choose to work on Mondays which is the day that most statutory holidays fall on. Is there any ruling that says that if the employee never works on those days they do not have to be paid. Thanks


if I give permission for a staff member to take a day off on a Friday and Monday is a stat, do I have to pay that employee for the stat?


Why is the Civic Holiday in Ontario scheduled on Tue August 1st this year.... 2017 ?


July 1st, 2017 falls on a Sunday which is not a normal work day for me. Is my employer required to either pay me or give me a day in lieu?


Jan 1st 2017 was on a Sunday, so does that mean Jan 2nd 2017 which is on a Monday counts as a holiday pay as well?


Hi If you work Mon - Thursday 20 hrs a week in a permanent position do you get another day off if the stat holiday falls on a Friday.


Good Afternoon. Can we, as a company, elect to Observe Canada Day & Remembrance day on the Fridays preceding the actual Holidays? Many of our employees would prefer to do so.


you are missing a holiday for the nunavut on July 9 which is Nunavut day.. You can confirm this information on CRA web site (Canadian Revenue Agency)


Good morning, in 2017 Remembrance Day falls on a Saturday. On what day will the Statutory Day be taken, on Friday November 10th or Monday November 13th? Thank you, Jo-Ann Hébert-Jensen Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique


I have been working at the same job for 26 yrs I work every Monday 10 hour days when it is a stat holiday do I still get paid for my 10 hours.


why isn't Easter Monday and Boxing day statutory holiday in British columbia? is there a petition I can sign? I think we could use more holidays. In Europe they have lot more days off and also 4-5 weeks holidays after first year.


Yes! If any stat holiday falls on a weekend, the day prior (weekday) or day after (weekday) MUST be acknowledged by your employer.... In Ontario. If you're employed by a unionized company, it may differ. It may be incorporated within the week of shutdown. Most manufacturering companies do recognize the stat on the 2nd of Jan./17. If your day off was the Sunday, and you work full time, You may want to ask your Adminsitrator.


If Christmas is on a Sunday with the Boxing Day Stat on the Monday, is the Christmas Stat observed on the Friday before or the Tuesday after the 25th?
