Paternity leave

Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail

If you are the father of a newborn, you are entitled to five consecutive weeks of paternity leave without pay. You may start the leave no earlier than the week of the child’s birth. You may take parental leave in addition to paternity leave.

If eligible, you will receive benefits under the Québec Parental Insurance Plan ( QPIP) during your paternity leave and your parental leave.
