In Canada, fixed-term work contracts are legal. However, courts and other adjudicators will find that a fixed-term employment contract is or became an indefinite term contract if the parties renew the same fixed-term contract several times or if the employee continues to work after the contract's stipulated expiration date. Employers in Canada are obligated to offer reasonable notice of termination or payment in lieu of notice to workers. Each jurisdiction's employment standards legislation specifies the minimum notice periods that businesses must offer employees depending on their term of service. Employees, however, are also entitled to a term of "reasonable" notice under common law and Quebec civil law, which typically surpasses the statutory minimum.

10. Working hours and overtime in Canada

In Canada, the standard workweek is 40 hours, or eight hours per day, for five days. Each week, federally regulated employees are entitled to 24 hours of rest, which is typically on a Sunday. If a holiday falls on a weekday, the work week is shortened by eight hours. A week's maximum work hours for an employee is 48. This limit may be exceeded in some circumstances.

11. Employee benefits in Canada

The majority of healthcare benefits are provided by the social security system to workers and residents. Every citizen has a Medicare card, which entitles them to free healthcare in their province, as well as child care benefits. Some jurisdictions charge a separate fee for this system, while others fund it through taxation or contributions.

The Canadian health-care system was founded on the premise that all Canadians would get all "medically necessary and hospital physician services." Each of Canada's ten provinces and three territories funds and administers a statewide health insurance program. There is no cost-sharing for the federally mandated health-care services. While Canadians are guaranteed access to hospital and physician services, it is up to each province to decide whether or not to pay “supplementary” benefits such as dental care and prescription coverage.

To cover these treatments, around two-thirds of Canadians purchase private supplemental insurance policies (or have an employer-sponsored plan). In Canada, doctors are often reimbursed by the government at a negotiated fee-for-service rate. Many candidates today anticipate that the employer will provide extra benefits such as private health insurance, dental and vision plans, income security (disability), and life insurance.

Employers frequently provide additional health and dental insurance, as well as group savings schemes.
