Paid leave: Canada way behind


Where is Canada in terms of paid leave compared to its counterparts in the world? A study published by Hotels.com has clarified this point. It's next to last in the standings, with 15 days of vacations and holidays per year.

 

Of the 30 countries studied by the Hotels.com hotel reservation website, Canada pales with only 10 days of vacation and 5 holidays per year, for a total of 15. Only Mexico is behind with 13 days. At the other end of the scale, Russia proliferates in this area with no less than 40 days of paid leave per year. The gaps between the first and last are therefore significant.
 

 

European countries above average

On average, the employees surveyed worldwide benefit from 28 days of leave per year. Above this average are, for example, Russia, Italy, Sweden, Finland and France. Below are Mexico and Canada, and also the United States, the Netherlands and a large number of Asian countries such as India, China, Singapore, Thailand and Japan.
