South Canterbury Anniversary
The Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Day, clashes with South Canterbury Anniversary Day and as a result, The Mackenzie, Timaru and Waimate District Councils have voted to move South Canterbury Anniversary Day to 11 November 2022 (which is Canterbury Anniversary Day).
This means that eligible employees will be able to claim entitlements for both the one off Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Day and South Canterbury Anniversary Day.
