I am still confused your site indicates that Easter Monday is not a provincial stat holiday in ontario that is incorrect I just telephoned a Ontario provincial ministry and the office is closed today!

Is there a way to have Easter Monday as a statutory holiday? is there a formal process?

the 15 and 30 are my pay days. In April it falls on the Saturday after Good Friday should pay be made on the 13th?

What about other holidays for people who are not Christian such as Passover, Yom Kipur and Chanukah. This is complete discrimination and I am just as much entitled to a day off from work and or school to celebrate major holidays with my loved ones.

In regards to Canada Day this year falling on a Saturday, is it mandatory to give employees a regular work day off with pay?

If i work for a federally regulated company not in the government but in the transportation industry why do we not get Easter Monday off? And why do we not get the provincial holidays off as well?

To get pay for the stat holiday in Ontario do I have to be 90days employed with the company?

Note on your commentary for Father's Day (not a holiday) and Mother's Day (not a statuary holiday). There is a subtle inference that Mother's Day is an implied holiday nonetheless. Please treat Father's Day with the same feeling. Tnx

What are the requirements to be paid for a Stat Holiday in Ontario? I took some time off for a mini vacation (Feb 11 - 18) and now was wondering if I am entitled to be paid for Family Day

My husband hasn't been paid for his statutory holidays. He works for a logging company and wonders what's the law regarding this?

Canada this year falls on a Saturday. We are open 7 days a week and plan on closing Saturday July 1st. Do we have to offer staff who typically do not work on Saturday the Friday or Monday?

We have a small business where the employees select their working hours. None of the employees choose to work on Mondays which is the day that most statutory holidays fall on. Is there any ruling that says that if the employee never works on those days they do not have to be paid. Thanks

if I give permission for a staff member to take a day off on a Friday and Monday is a stat, do I have to pay that employee for the stat?

Why is the Civic Holiday in Ontario scheduled on Tue August 1st this year.... 2017 ?

July 1st, 2017 falls on a Sunday which is not a normal work day for me. Is my employer required to either pay me or give me a day in lieu?

Jan 1st 2017 was on a Sunday, so does that mean Jan 2nd 2017 which is on a Monday counts as a holiday pay as well?

Hi If you work Mon - Thursday 20 hrs a week in a permanent position do you get another day off if the stat holiday falls on a Friday.

Good Afternoon. Can we, as a company, elect to Observe Canada Day & Remembrance day on the Fridays preceding the actual Holidays? Many of our employees would prefer to do so.

Good morning, in 2017 Remembrance Day falls on a Saturday. On what day will the Statutory Day be taken, on Friday November 10th or Monday November 13th? Thank you, Jo-Ann Hébert-Jensen Conseil scolaire francophone de la Colombie-Britannique

I have been working at the same job for 26 yrs I work every Monday 10 hour days when it is a stat holiday do I still get paid for my 10 hours.

why isn't Easter Monday and Boxing day statutory holiday in British columbia? is there a petition I can sign? I think we could use more holidays. In Europe they have lot more days off and also 4-5 weeks holidays after first year.

Yes! If any stat holiday falls on a weekend, the day prior (weekday) or day after (weekday) MUST be acknowledged by your employer.... In Ontario. If you're employed by a unionized company, it may differ. It may be incorporated within the week of shutdown. Most manufacturering companies do recognize the stat on the 2nd of Jan./17. If your day off was the Sunday, and you work full time, You may want to ask your Adminsitrator.

If Christmas is on a Sunday with the Boxing Day Stat on the Monday, is the Christmas Stat observed on the Friday before or the Tuesday after the 25th?
