Good Friday and Easter Sunday coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover in 2021. Easter and the holidays that are related to it are moveable feasts in that they do not fall on a fixed date in the Gregorian or Julian calendars which follow only the cycle of the sun; rather, their dates are determined on a lunisolar calendar similar to the Hebrew calendar.
Public Holiday Pay
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.
