Holiday Closure Notice

This notice is from the archives of The Notice Board. Information contained in this notice was accurate at the time of publication but may no longer be so.

Dear Colleagues,
Every year it seems that time moves more quickly and that is certainly the case again this year as the holiday season is fast approaching. We all look forward to spending time with family and friends during the holiday season and enjoying all that the festive season offers.

The University will not be open during the holiday season from Monday, December 25, 2023 to Monday, January 1, 2024 inclusive, with recognition and appreciation of those who will be working at some time during the holiday period. The University will reopen on Tuesday, January 2, 2024.

It has been a very busy year for the University and thus where possible within the operational contexts of units, we encourage all employees to take vacation days before and after the holiday break (December 18-22, 2023 and January 2-5, 2024). We understand workloads may have discouraged many of you from taking time off over the past few years, so to allow employees to take vacation time, President's Executive requests that, during these periods, no meetings that are not crucial be scheduled and supervisors do their best to curtail operational requirements.

Please note that if employees take additional time off beyond the holiday closure period (December 25, 2023 to January 1, 2024) that these days are to be taken using accrued vacation. We wish to extend our best wishes for the season and thank you for your continued service and dedication to the University. All the best to you and your family and friends.

Nancy Walker
Vice-President (Finance & Administration)
