I'm from australia and am about to register in onterio. I'm used to taking 3 months off every year from work to travel (6 weeks paid and 10 weeks leave without pay). I know you only get three weeks paid leave in onterio if your permanent staff (which seems helishly short to someone used to taking a quarter of the year off each year) but do toronto hospitals allow people to take leave without pay if they're permanent? I suspect not but I thought Id ask.
Also, If I were to get a casual position would taking long holidays be frowned upon? obviously you cant be forced to work as a casual but I also know at home casual shifts dry up pretty quickly for nurses if the management decide they don't like for one reason or another. Is it usually an issue if your taking too much holiday time if your casual in toronto?
I know it can be hospital and unit specific for this kind of thing but even getting some general idea would be a great help for me.
