Important Notice

This page is being updated. Meanwhile, as the information currently online may not be complete, we invite you to consult the French version. Thank you for your understanding.

When a loved one dies, you must notify your employer of your absence as soon as possible. The Act respecting labour standards makes provision for leave under such circumstances. If you are covered by a collective agreement, such leave may, however, vary.
