Please note: If your employees work weekdays, certain statutory holidays may occur on weekends and will need to be adjusted for observance.

By storing your company holidays in Collage, the system knows to only deduct actual vacation days from an employee's balance, ensuring your time off balances and time off pay are always accurate. 

An employee's holidays are based on their location. If an employee's location is updated, their holidays will also update automatically.

Collage comes pre-loaded with every statutory holiday in Canada, sorted by province and territory. Below are instructions on how to add the out of the box statutory holidays as well as add your own custom holidays.

Adding statutory holidays

Each summer, Collage makes available Canadian statutory holidays for the following year. Here is how to import them into your company.

1. Navigate to Time Off > Holidays.

2. Click the year drop down and select the upcoming year.

3. Click the Add Statutory Holidays button.

4. Review the statutory holidays to be added. If your company is going to observe a holiday on a different day than Collage recommends you will have the opportunity to edit the date later. Once you are ready, click Apply Selected.

5. Review your added statutory holidays. If you team will be observing a holiday on a different date than the default select Edit to adjust the date of the holiday.

6. Once reviewed that's it! The platform will recognize all of your saved holidays and apply them accordingly when your team requests time off.

Adding custom holidays

If you offer your employees additional holidays like a bonus day before a long weekend, add them in Collage so they do not count towards an employee's vacation request during that time.

1. Navigate to Time Off > Holidays.

2. Ensure the year selected is correct and click Add Holiday.

3. Enter a name for your holiday (visible to employees) and select the date of the holiday. If the holiday is only applicable to employees in certain locations, select Some Employees and choose the locations.

4. Click Save and your holiday is live.
