National Day for Truth and Reconciliation – is it a paid holiday?
In 2021, the federal government announced September 30 as the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. It is a day to honour the survivors and victims of the residential school system, as well as their families and communities.
For federally regulated businesses, September 30 is a paid holiday; however, the situation varies among the provinces and territories.
|Jurisdiction||Is it a paid/statutory/general holiday?|
|Prince Edward Island||Yes|
|Newfoundland and Labrador||No|
*Yukon held a public consultation from March 8 to April 30, 2022 regarding the idea of a new general holiday, but has not released a decision.
