In addition to the 5 National holidays (New Year, Good Friday, Canada Day, Labour Day, Christmas) there are 4 Provincial Holidays namely Alberta Family Day, Victoria Day, Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day.

Optional Holidays

These are not paid (public) statutory holidays and, as such, only federal employers are required to give the day off.
  • Easter Monday - No it is not a National Stat Holiday. Employees are given Good Friday as stat holiday.
  • Heritage Day or Civic Holiday - Civic Holiday is called Heritage Day in Alberta. It is not a Provincial Stat Holiday but most businesses take it anyways.
  • Boxing Day - It is a day following Christmas.
