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.
At present, provinces and territories determine which days are public holidays. Remembrance Day is recognized as a statutory holiday for federally regulated workers under the Canada Labour Code.
The request to make Remembrance Day a national public holiday across Canada without removing any existing public holiday continues.
