Public holidays

 

There are a number of dates during the year when specific forms or returns are due to be filed, or certain payments or remittances are due to be paid.

When a due date falls on a Saturday, a Sunday, or a holiday recognized by the CRA, special rules apply that relate to the next business day.

For information about due dates and any special rules that apply, see Important dates for Individuals, or Important dates for Businesses.
