If you work one of the following stat holidays, you may claim stat holiday pay or take time in lieu:

  • New Year's Day 
  • Family Day
  • Good Friday
  • Easter Monday
  • Victoria Day
  • Canada Day
  • Saskatchewan Day
  • Labour Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Remembrance Day
  • Christmas Day
  • Boxing Day

Stat holidays run from 0000 hours to 2400 hours (one calendar day). If you work on a stat holiday, you may claim either:

a. payment at the rate of one-half (1/2) times the normal day’s pay plus a paid day off (scheduled anytime within the academic year)

b. payment at the rate of one and one-half (1 1/2) times the normal day’s pay with no paid day off

*please note that Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day have a slightly different arrangement in that residents are entitled to 6 consecutive days off somewhere between December 20 and January 5. Residents cannot claim the benefit of time in lieu or extra pay for these three stat holidays because you are getting 6 days off in lieu of the three stats. Residents who are not scheduled to work on these three stats are not expected nor required to attend work.
