List of Saskatchewan Public Holidays

There are 10 public (statutory) holidays per year in Saskatchewan. Below, find a list of the 2019 and 2018 Saskatchewan public holidays including the date they will be observed on each year. For most employees, these are days off with pay. Some employees may be required to work and special wage rates would apply.

If the employer’s establishment is normally open on Sunday, the public holiday pay rules apply to that Sunday. Where businesses are normally closed on Sunday, and New Year’s Day, Christmas Day, or Remembrance Day fall on a Sunday, the following Monday is observed as a public holiday. Canada Day is covered under Canada’s Holidays Act. Currently, federal legislation states when July 1 falls on a Sunday, the holiday is observed on Monday, July 2. When a public holiday falls on a Saturday, it is not observed on a different day.
