Where do people have November 11 off?
Every year, Remembrance Day is commemorated on November 11 with ceremonies, poppies and a moment of silence to remember people who served.
Depending on where you live in the country, you might have to work on that day or you might get the day off from your job.
When it comes to other parts of the country, it's the same in six provinces.
For most people in those provinces, they still get paid on that day even though they're off work.
What provinces don't have Remembrance Day as a holiday?
Only four provinces don't have Remembrance Day as a stat holiday.
Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec don't list it as a public holiday which is interesting because those provinces are in a row geographically and that breaks up the string of provinces that do have it as a stat day.
Nova Scotia is the only province in Atlantic Canada that doesn't have Remembrance Day as a stat holiday and the day is unique in another way too.
While it's not a general paid holiday, there is legislation about it that prevents a lot of businesses from operating on November 11.
So some people don't have to work but it's not a day off for everyone.
What are other stat holidays in provinces and territories?
While holidays differ in each province and territory, a lot of the same ones can be found in multiple places.
New Year's Day, Canada Day, Labour Day and Christmas Day are holidays in every single province and territory.
Other common ones include Family Day, Good Friday, Victoria Day and Thanksgiving.
Victoria Day and Thanksgiving aren't holidays provincewide in all of Atlantic Canada.
There are also some days that are province or territory-specific like Discovery Day in Yukon, Nunavut Day, B.C. Day, Saskatchewan Day, Louis Riel Day in Manitoba, New Brunswick Day and Islander Day in P.E.I.
Federal politicians are trying to make Orange Shirt Day a statutory holiday for federally regulated workers in Canada.
If that happens, September 30 would become National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
