Family Day, Monday, February 15, 2021, is celebrated in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick. Family Day (it may have a different name depending on the jurisdiction) is recognized as a public (statutory) holiday in these provinces and employees get the day off with pay, if eligible.
There are a number of upcoming public (statutory or general) holidays that require employers to provide paid days off to employees. Although, in some jurisdictions, social gatherings are restricted to your own household, and in other jurisdictions the number of people who can gather is limited to five or 10 people because of public health orders to stop the spread of COVID-19, the holidays are always a well-deserved break — even for those who work remotely or from home.
Labour Day is an annual and global holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers around the world. For most countries, Labour Day is linked with International Workers’ Day, which occurs on May 1.
