Canada 2014 Statutory Holidays
Public holidays in Canada are legislated at three different levels – national, provincial, and territorial levels. Many holidays are observed nationwide, yet each province and territorial in Canada also celebrates its own holidays.
Major Christian holidays such as Good Friday and Christmas are officially celebrated as Canada Statutory holidays. Canadians also celebrate some festivals from other religions. To illustrate, students and employees are sometimes granted a day off on Jewish, Muslim, or Orthodox Christian festivals.
A statutory holiday is regulated either through the federal, provincial, or territorial government.
