Canadian holiday pay made easy

Canadian holiday pay made easy

We’ve made it easier than ever to calculate statutory holiday pay for your employees.

Canadian holiday pay calculations can be very tricky: The rules vary by province, and not all employees are eligible for the same holiday pay.

Previously in Wave, you would manually calculate stat holiday pay, and pay it using the Bonuses feature. We’ve simplified all that.

In fact, it’s automated. Payroll by Wave will calculate and apply statutory holiday pay for your employees, and ensure that all provincial tax requirements are met, with no additional effort by you.
