In Quebec you get a year. A luxury indeed... excessive if you ask me. Employers are also required by law to keep your position available. Our sales manager just returned from maternity leave and is pregnant again. She'll be leaving in June. Basically over a 2.5 year period she will have actually worked 6 months.

Yeah.... all these luxuries are great. Free health care, maternity leave, welfare, social programs, etc etc etc... Of course it comes at a price, if you're a regular working person in Quebec you are taxed out the ass.
