Floating Holiday

In order to recognize the Lundi Gras holiday in 2021, Monday, February 15 will be considered as a floating holiday for staff. Those staff employees that can and would like to take that day off as their floating holiday can do so with the approval of their manager. Those employees who are unable to take that day off or would prefer to use it later may coordinate with their manager for another day during the fiscal year to take in its place. The floating holiday must be used before the end of the fiscal year.

Holidays and Liberal Leave days are subject to change.
