Ontario Provincial Stat Holidays

General holidays, also referred to as statutory or “stat” holidays, are federally or provincially legislated holidays where employees in Ontario receive a day off, a day off with pay or compensation in lieu of time off.thTGSFCSG8

However, Civic Holiday* in Canada is not a statutory holiday; thus, it is not subjected to Holiday Pay, but often an accepted day off from work. A bill has been attempted to be passed in the house of commons but it has always been unsuccessful. If an employer wants you to work, it is a regular work day.
