Fixed-Term Contracts

Most contracts in Canada are indefinite. However, fixed term contracts are permitted and naturally expire at the end of the term unless there is just cause to end the contract early.

Worker Classifications

There are no official subcategories of Workers in Canada.

Probationary Periods

Probationary periods are permitted. There are no restrictions on duration, but are generally three months. Termination requirements during a probationary period vary by jurisdiction.


Each province/territory recognizes different statutory/public holidays and has different eligibility criteria. The number of holidays recognized ranges from 7 to 10.

Most Canadian Workers are entitled to vacation pay equivalent to 4% of their gross wages, commission earnings, and work related bonuses. For most Workers, vacation is included in each paycheck and the Worker is not paid when they use vacation time. Alternatively, vacation pay is banked as it accrued and paid in subsequent lump sum payments, generally when vacation time is used. Any accrued but unused vacation pay is paid out upon termination.
