Federally mandated stat holidays are New Year's Day, Good Friday, Canada Day, Labour Day and Christmas Day. Any other stat is decided by provinces or territories.

The proposed new stat is National Truth and Reconciliation Day. If the bill is passed, it will be on September 30. At this point it's unclear if this is going to be national statutory holiday or up to provinces and territories to adopt it and if it will apply only to federal employees or everyone. It is also not known what year will the first observation take place.

Indigenous communities oppose to using September 30 for this new proposed holiday because September 30 is when Orange Shirt Day is currently observed and the indigenous leaders feel that combining a day of celebration with a day of reconciliation is "inappropriate and disrespectful".
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

Just how many employer and/or taxpayer funded days off is enough??? In BC we already have a minimum of 10 paid stats with some labour contracts raising that number to 12 with Easter Monday and Boxing Day. That is an additional 2 weeks or more of paid time off on top of annual vacation time. Everyone likes paid time off but someone has to pay for it and ultimately it is either the consumer, the taxpayer or loss of Canadian competitiveness in the global economy.
Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Countries in Europe have 11/12/13 stats a year, plus 30 days paid vacation a year plus an extra monthly pay cheque to pay for your vacation and their economy is just fine.

Germany has a better GDP than Canada. Higher budget surplus. Lower public share of Government debt, lower personal debt and lower unemployment. Economy is just fine. Prost :130:
