Pay, vacation & statutory holidays

Pay period

The pay period is Monday to Sunday midnight. Your first pay will be issued the week following your first week of work and each week thereafter.

Direct deposit or cheque

Your pay will be deposited in your bank account on Thursday at midnight if you provide us with a specimen cheque so that direct deposits can be made.

You can also opt to receive your pay cheque by mail; even though cheques are mailed out Tuesday evening, you should count on at least two days before receiving them. We are not responsible for any delays that may be caused by Canada Post.

If you prefer, you can drop by our Montreal office and pick up your cheque in person, any time after 8 a.m. on Thursday.

Vacation, 4% and record of employment

An amount equal to 4% is accumulated in your employee record and delivered to you when your employment terminates, or when you take your annual vacation.
