Public holiday pay calculator
For employers and employees: See how much you should pay or be paid for public holidays.
Unless you are in an industry that is exempt under the Employment Standards Act, 2000, most employees, including new employees, are entitled to public holiday pay.
If a public holiday does not fall on a normal working day, employees should receive a substitute holiday instead of public holiday pay.
Some industries (for example, hotels, hospitals and restaurants) have special rules which require employees to work on a public holiday. Learn more about public holiday pay.
