Orange Shirt Day (National Day for Truth and Reconciliation)

On December 7, 2023, Manitoba passed Bill 4 to amend the Employment Standards Code and the Interpretation Act to make Orange Shirt Day a statutory holiday starting on September 30, 2024.

Employers must recognize September 30th as a statutory holiday without the option to substitute it for another date. Employers should also update their holiday policies and communicate these changes to their employees.
