Statutory Holidays in NewFoundland and Labrador - 2017

       (View Statutory Holiday Act for Province of Newfoundland and Labrador)

In addition to the 5 National holidays (New Year, Good Friday, Canada Day, Labour Day, Christmas) there is only 1 Provincial Holiday Armistice Day (November 11). Thanksgiving is not a statutory holiday. Canada Day is not a statutory holiday as July 1 is Memorial Day.

Optional Holidays

These are not paid (public) statutory holidays and, as such, only federal employers are required to give the day off.
  • Patrick's Day (March 17)
  • Saint George's Day
  • Discovery Day (June 24)
  • Orangemen's Day (July 12)
These have not been celebrated as statutory holidays since 1992. They are, however, observed by the provincial government. Unlike most other provinces, there is no province-wide holiday on the first Monday in August. It may be seen as redundant due to the Royal St. John's Regatta, which is observed as a civic holiday in St. John's on the first Wednesday in August (or, in case of poor weather, the next suitable day thereafter). Harbour Grace and Labrador City have a similar holiday for their regatta in late July. All other municipalities are allowed to designate one day a year as a civic holiday, however many do not take advantage of this.

St George's Day:
St George's Day is a provincial holiday in Newfoundland and Labrador, so it is designated as a paid holiday for government employees. School calendars in the province are set by individual school districts so those wishing to find out if St George's Day is a school holiday should check with these districts.
Here is a list of Stat holidays for NewFoundland and Labrador and the dates they occur for last 4 years.
