Moving a Public Holiday

Employers can request a public holiday be observed on another day. To request authorization, employers must complete an Authorization to Move a Public Holiday Permit Form and send to the Director of Employment Standards for approval. A majority of employees must also agree for the public holiday to be observed on another day. If employees are represented by a trade union, the employer and trade union may agree in writing to observe the public holiday on another day. If a permit is granted, the public holiday pay rules will apply to the day stated on the permit.

In recognition of the significance of Remembrance Day, switching that day to another day for observation will only be granted in exceptional circumstances.
