Add national holidays: Outlook 2010 and 2013

Rather than manually adding national holidays, you can use Calendar options to import them into your Outlook Calendar. You can also add holidays recognized by UVic into your calendar.

To add country-specific holidays to your calendar:

  1. Select Options from the File menu.

  2. Click Calendar, located in the left-side menu. The Calendar Options will open. Click the Add Holidays... button.

  3. A new dialogue box will appear. You can select various countries, but we recommend adding only Canadian holidays (which include provincial holidays as well). Click OK and close the Outlook Options dialogue box when you are done.
