Ariana All of the stat holidays are paid except Christmas (family day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, etc) I take the stat holidays during xmas as part of my vacation which is unpaid. This year I took 3 weeks off during Christmas but only used 5 of my 20 vacation days because stats don’t count in my vacation time if that makes sense! I tally it the way my husbands work tally’s his vacay.

I take two weeks during the summer as well. I feel like, for me anyway, having unpaid vacation means the parents don’t seem to mind so much how much time I take off which benefits me.

I get 5 paid sick days and 5 paid personal days. Anything beyond that is unpaid.

Jupadia Canada here so some of my stat holidays are different.

Closed paid days

New years day - January 1
Family day - February 17 (third monday of month)
Easter friday
Easter monday (not an official stat but get paid)
Victoria day - may 18 (third monday)
Canada day - July 1
Civic holiday- August 3 (first monday) (not official stat but get paid)
Labour day - September 7 (first monday)
Thanksgiving - October 12 ( seconed monday)
Christmas day - December 25
Boxing Day - December 26

I also close early on halloween at 5:00 instead of 6pm and on Christmas eve at 12pm. Both are regular pay days.

I also take up to 3 weeks off unpaid. I'll be taking a couple days of it at christmas 21- 23 and the 24 off in lieu of boxing day. Also Canada day is on a Wednesday this year so I'll be taking off either the Monday tuesday or the thursday friday to make it a long weekend. One week of vacation will be taken in summer. Vacation days are given to parents at least 1 month in advance, but I'll tell them when I book. For example we go camping during the summer for that week, but cant book till its 5 months before but we book then, and I'll tell parents right away so they actually end up with 5 months notice. I'll let parents know soon for the days off at Christmas next year. Vacation days are not paid here.
