Default Do you have a paid day off for Easter Monday?

Do you get today as a holiday? (Not you taking a vacation day to make an extra long weekend or taking Monday in lieu of Good Friday.) If so, what industry do you work in?

Traffic always seems light on Easter Monday but most businesses seem to have regular hours. I think even some government offices are open today and that used to be one sector that got Easter Monday off.

Yeah I know a lot of people who took a vacation day today, but Friday is the only technical stat. No one I knew got paid to be off today (some got told that today was a day they had "off" without pay however).

I do know a handful of government services are on a holiday day (Enmax, City Of Calgary Roads, etc.) but I have no idea if they are being paid.

Where I used to work (O&G Engineering), we "worked" an extra 0.5 unpaid hours a day and on long weekends we would also then get the next day off.

But no, I dont have it off today

I know Provincial employees are being paid for today, so not 100% sure about City and Enmax but likely yes. I expect it's due to union contract since it's not a stat, Good Friday was the stat.

my building's empty anyways, so I can't tell if people have the day off or if it's business as usual.

I'm pretty close to a Provincial employee (AHS) and I'm working today.

I thought it was federal employees that got it off?

Our company lets you substitute religious holidays. I swapped today (which we get as a holiday) for some random Catholic holiday in August about Mary.

Girlfriend does, she's at Nexen.

Are you a teacher with CBE? Both my kids are out of school today, so I thought it was a day off for teachers. Maybe a PD day?

Some provincial government employees definitely have today off, but it's business as usual in private industry from what I've seen.

O&G. At work. Even the Calgary parking authority doesn't consider Monday a holiday in regard to free street parking.

This. I think it's just federal employees that get it these days, in terms of the different levels of government

Nope, but have to take day off each year (PDO/Vacation) as schools closed.
Friday was the Stat holiday.

CRA, schools, other federal employees, etc are those getting the extra day off.

Never heard of most businesses getting Easter Monday off as a paid vacation day.
