Easter in 2023 falls on April 7 (Good Friday) and April 9 (Easter Sunday), roughly in the middle of Family Day and Victoria Day.

This year, Remembrance Day will fall on a weekend, allowing everyone to participate in ceremonies honouring those who served in the military, including in Ontario, where it is still not a statutory holiday.

Christmas in 2023 falls on a Monday with Boxing Day falling on the following Tuesday. This makes holiday planning simpler because, in years when Christmas falls on a weekend, there is sometimes controversy about and even misunderstanding about which days are paid vacations.

In 2021, September 30—a Saturday this year—will be honoured as the new National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Due to the fact that it is only for employees who fall under government regulation, this holiday has replaced others as the most divisive occasion. Given that Remembrance Day is not a holiday in Ontario, it comes in second.
