Remembrance Day falls on Monday, November 11, in 2019. Although Remembrance Day was declared a legal holiday like Canada Day and Victoria Day under the federal Holidays Act on March 1, 2018, provinces and territories determine which days are public holidays in their regions.
Remembrance Day, in some provinces, is considered a paid public (statutory) holiday, under Employment/Labour Standards legislation. There are various exemptions and considerations to take into account when it comes to Remembrance Day, as a statutory holiday.
