According to the law on labor standards, thise right is acquired over a period of 12 consecutive months, generally between May 1 and April 30 of the following year. The length of vacation to which the employee is entitled is determined on the basis of his period of continuous service. The longer the period, the longer the vacation can be. We invite you to consult the website of the CNESST.
