National Statutory Holidays in Canada

List of statutory holidays at the national level celebrated in every province and territory. Select a province or territory from the menu to view stat holidays celebrated in your area.

Canadian stat holidays can be pretty confusing because of differences in the federal and provincial regulations - you can read about user posted comments about this in the Canadian Holidays Forum. In most countries there is one single list of national holidays observed everywhere in the country by every employee, federal or not.

Why can't we all commemorate Remembrance Day? How come Quebec celebrates Easter Monday instead of Good Friday? Who knows, but until the country has one unified list of national holdiays for everyone here is a list of federal Candian statutory holidays for 2015, 2016 and 2017.

View all national and provincial holidays combined.
