Canadian Public Holidays 2012

Home » Country - Canada » Canadian Public Holidays 2012


Canadian public holidays are legislated on the countrywide, provincial and territorial levels. Most of these holidays are noticed nationwide, but every region and territory comes with their own holidays as well.

While major Christian holidays for example Christmas and Good Friday are formally noticed, other religious holidays are commonly accepted in Canada. For example, several school children and employees take days off for Jewish holidays, Muslim holidays, or Eastern Orthodox observances based on the Julian calendar.

A Canada governmental holiday is legislated through either the government, or a provincial or territorial government.

Please be aware this 2012 Canadian public holidays calendar is dependant on estimates only and not an official holiday calendar. We do not and cannot guarantee the accuracy of this Canada 2012 holidays calendar.
