In Canada, every employer is required by law to complete T4 statement of remuneration paid slips and summaries for the prior year by the last day of February, or, if the last day of February falls on a weekend, the first business day following that.
If an employer mails in the slips, the T4s must be postmarked on that day, or risk being assessed penalties. T4s for employment in 2018 are due Thursday, February 28, 2019. Since the last day of February 2020 is a Saturday, T4s for 2019 employment will be due Monday, March 2, 2020.
