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.
Time off with pay
Good Friday, observed on March 30 this year, is a statutory (public) holiday recognized across Canada. Depending on the jurisdiction, most employees are entitled to a day off with regular pay or public holiday pay.
In Alberta, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick, Family Day is recognized as a public (statutory) holiday and employees get the day off with pay, if eligible. Each year, these provinces celebrate Family Day on the third Monday in February. In 2018, Monday, February 19 is Family Day.
