Calendar Of Canadian Holidays Year 2014

Holidays in Canada are either statutory, federal or optional. There are five nationwide statutory holidays namely: New Year's Day, Good Friday, Canada Day, Labour Day, Christmas Day. Federal holidays are mandated by federal legislation for federally regulared employees nationwide. There are other statutory and optional holidays observed in Canadian provinces under the same or diferent names and dates. Some municipalities also have local statutory holidays. For instance, the morning of the Stampede Parade is often given as a half-day holiday in the city of Calgary. In Ontario, the August Civic Holiday is not defined provincially, but by each municipality. If a holiday occurs on a day that is normally not worked, then another day off with pay will be provided. There are some exceptions, however. In Alberta, an employee is not entitled to compensation if a holiday falls on a non-work day. There are also specific laws pertinent to the National Holiday of Quebec. When New Year's Day, Canada Day, Remembrance Day, Christmas Day or Boxing Day falls on a Saturday or Sunday you would not normally work, you are entitled to a holiday with pay on the working day immediately before or after the holiday. If one of the other holidays falls on a weekend, then your employer must add a holiday with pay to your annual vacation or give you a paid day off at another mutually convenient time.

The following are Canada's holidays and observances that apply to 2014:

Notes:

[1] This is a statutory holiday. A statutory holiday (also known as "stats"or "general"or "public"holiday) in Canada is legislated either through the federal, or a provincial or territorial government.[2] Most workers, public and private, are entitled to take the day off with regular pay. However, some employers may require employees to work on such a holiday, but the employee must either receive a day off in lieu of the holiday or must be paid at a premium rate.

[16] This is a civil observance in Canada and it is generally not taken as holiday.

[8] Statutory holiday in Alberta, Ontario, and Saskatchewan. British Columbia celebrated its first Family Day in 2013 (on the 2nd Monday in February). Celebrated as Louis Riel Day (statutory holiday) in Manitoba. Celebrated as "Islander Day"in Prince Edward Island. Not observed elsewhere.

[14] This is an optional holiday in Yukon.

[11] For Newfoundland and Labrador, these days have not been observed as statutory holidays since 1992. They are, however, observed by the provincial government. Unlike most other provinces, there is no province-wide holiday on the first Monday in August. It may be seen as redundant due to the Royal St. John's Regatta, which is observed as a civic holiday in St. John's on the first Wednesday in August (or, in case of poor weather, the next suitable day thereafter). Harbour Grace and Labrador City have a similar holiday for their regatta in late July. All other municipalities are entitled to designate one day a year as a civic holiday, however many do not take advantage of this.

[2] In Quebec, non-federally regulated employers must give either Good Friday or Easter Monday as a statutory holiday, though some give both days.

[3] This is a holiday mandated by federal legislation for federally regulated employees. All banks commemorate this holiday, and it is statutory in some provinces and territories in Canada.

[10] Not a statutory holiday in any province or territory;however, in Quebec employers must give either Good Friday or Easter Monday as a statutory holiday, though most give both days. Banks remain open (legally they cannot close for more than three consecutive days except in emergencies), but employees often receive a "floating"paid day off to be taken on or near the holiday. This is not one of the nine "General Holidays"as defined by the Canada Labour Code - Part III. As such, there is no legal requirement for private sector employers in federally regulated industries to provide Easter Monday as a paid holiday to employees. However, many federal government offices will be closed on this day.

[4] Statutory holiday in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Ontario, Quebec (coincides with National Patriots' Day), Saskatchewan, and Yukon. A holiday in New Brunswick under the Days of Rest Act. Not a statutory holiday in the eastern maritime provinces of Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island or in Newfoundland and Labrador.

[12] Not a statutory holiday. This holiday originated as a paid holiday for Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated and regional Inuit associations. It became a ½ day holiday for Government employees in 1999 and a full day in 2001. Most employers give the day off with the notable exceptions being the Federal Government and the North West Company.

[9] Statutory holiday in British Columbia (British Columbia Day), New Brunswick (New Brunswick Day), Northwest Territories (Civic Holiday), Nunavut (Civic Holiday), and Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan Day). Civic holiday (may be a paid vacation day depending on employer) in Alberta (Heritage Day), Manitoba (Civic Holiday), Ontario (John Galt Day + Simcoe Day + others), Nova Scotia (Natal Day is an optional holiday), Prince Edward Island (Federal Civic Holiday). Not observed in Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, or Yukon.

[15] In parts of Canada, the term "Civic Holiday"is a generic name referring to the annual holiday on the first Monday of August. However, this definition is far from uniform nationwide as three provinces and one territory do not recognize it at all, and five other provinces do not oblige employers to offer holiday pay on this day, thus making it a civic holiday in the legal sense. No universal name is recognized for this holiday — the official name varies between the provinces and even between municipalities within Ontario. This holiday is commonly referred to as "August Long Weekend"but this is not a government term.

[13] This is celebrated mainly in the capital city of Charlottetown on the third Friday in August marking the end of the Provincial Exhibition and the Gold Cup and Saucer race at the Charlottetown Driving Park, which is a bank and contract holiday for some Civil Servants (others get the first Monday of August as a Civic Holiday).

[6] Statutory holiday in Alberta, British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories, Nova Scotia, Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, and Yukon. In Manitoba, an "Official day of Observance", not a statutory holiday. In Ontario, not a statutory holiday in that employers have the option of giving Remembrance Day or an alternate day off. Not a statutory holiday in Quebec.

[7] Provincially, a statutory holiday in Ontario. A holiday in New Brunswick under the Days of Rest Act. Optional holiday in Alberta.
