Holidays, Time Off, and Leaves

Sick Days, Personal Time Off, and Leaves of Absense

We have no policy limiting the number of sick days, time off, or leaves that members take. However, we recognize taking any of the above has to be balanced against existing deadlines and commitments.

Member-workers should submit any planned or unplanned time off using this form: If you have any issues or questions notify Operations as soon as possible by email:

Public and Additional Holidays

Our virtual office is closed during Ontario's nine public holidays and member-workers are entitled (encouraged) to those days off and receive an annualized public holiday pay. We recognize three additional holidays where the office is closed and members are encouraged not to work: Civic Holiday (first Monday in August), May Day or International Workers' Day (May 1), and Remembrance Day (November 11). During December Holidays the virtual office is closed for roughly two weeks.

In cases where members choose to work on these days, or under special circumstances where a project requires, they will receive regular wages for those hours and are entitled to take substitute time off.
