Holiday Schedule 2021-22 and 2022-23

We are pleased to announce the University of Toronto Holiday Schedule for 2021-22 and 2022-23.

In planning the University’s holiday schedule, we make every effort to provide a two-week closure in December, knowing how much it is appreciated by our community. We also try to align with the schedules of the Greater Toronto Area school boards. Unfortunately, we were unable to schedule a full two-week break for 2021-22 and 2022-23 due to the calendar cycle and the feedback received on academic programming requirements, which are outlined in each division’s sessional dates.

This year we had the opportunity to provide one Presidential holiday in the 2021-22 Holiday Schedule and one Presidential holiday in the 2022-23 Holiday Schedule. This day has been added to Canada Day to create an extra-long weekend each year.

It is more important than ever for our community to take time away from work and prioritize well-being and restoration. We encourage individuals to book and use their vacation time regularly. As we continue adapting to the widespread changes associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, the University is committed to supporting wellness in the workplace. The measures we take individually and collectively to create a culture that prioritizes well-being during this time will help build resilience as well as mitigate current and future challenges.
