Weekend. The weekend will begin at 11 p.m. on Friday and will end at 11 p.m. on Sunday.
Weekend. The resident shall be entitled to two (2) weekends off, without any clinical activities, in each twenty-eight (28) calendar-day period. In addition, the resident shall not work more than two (2) consecutive weekends. The weekend, for the purposes of the collective agreement, is defined as: “The period of time extending from 17:00 on Friday until 22:00 on Sunday. For the purposes of Article 25.05, however, “weekend” means the period of time extending from 17:00 on Friday to 08:00 on Monday. Nevertheless, the resident whose daily work schedule ends no later than 20:00 on Friday is not thereby deemed to have worked that weekend.” This definition of “weekend” never varies. So if a statutory holiday falls on a Monday, that day will not be considered a weekend day, since it does not meet the criteria set out in the definition of “weekend” in Article 1.09 of the Agreement. Therefore, if you return from vacation and the Monday is a statutory holiday, that day is not part of the weekend. You are entitled to two weekends off per 28-day period. This leave means you are exempted from any clinical activities, including weekend rounds. In addition, you may not work more than two weekends running, both within one period and between two periods. You must therefore advise the person drawing up your call schedule, in order to ensure conformity of the schedules during period changes. INTERPRETATION MISCELLANEOUS WEEKEND RELEASE FROM CALL PRIOR TO EXAMINATION The resident shall be released from his call duty or any performance of work in the evening, at night and on weekends, during the seven (7) days preceding examinations of the Collège des médecins du Québec, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, the College of Family Physicians of Canada or the Medical Council of Canada with a view to obtaining a licence or specialist certification.
