Observing a Public Holiday on a Different Day

Employers can ask the Director of Employment Standards for a permit to observe a public holiday on another day. To request authorization, employers must complete a Move a Public Holiday Permit Application Form and send it to the Director for approval. A majority of employees must agree to the public holiday being observed on another day by signing the application form. If a permit is granted, the public holiday pay rules will apply to the day stated on the permit.

If employees are represented by a trade union, the employer and trade union can agree in writing to observe the public holiday on another day. In recognition of the significance of Remembrance Day, permission to observe that holiday on another day will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.

Applications should be submitted at least two weeks before the holiday.
