Mark your calendars: All the Canadian statutory holidays in 2023

Dec 31 2022, 3:56 pm

As the calendar flips to 2023, take note of all the statutory holidays in Canada for the new year.

There are 13 public holidays in Canada which are off days and then the classics: Valentine’s Day (February 14), St. Patrick’s Day (March 17), Mother’s Day (May 14), and Father’s Day (June 18) ‚ÄĒ which are not stat holidays.

But we’d recommend telling your boss about that “dentist appointment” for St. Patrick’s Day…

Take note that most school boards in 2023 will start the school year on September 5 (the day after Labour Day).

Daylight saving time in 2023 starts on Sunday, March 12 and ends on Sunday, November 5.

Have at it, Canada. Here are all the holidays for 2023.
