Trinidad and Tobago 2017 Public Holidays Announced

The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has released its official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago for the calendar year 2017.

As usual (10-Jan-2016, 09-Nov-2014 and 04-Jan-2012), the aforementioned announcement of the official list of Trinidad and Tobago bank holidays and of non-working public holidays in Trinidad and Tobago for the calendar year 2017, marks the Muslim and Hindu public holidays dates as TBA (to be announced) as these are traditionally announced at the last-minute (05-Oct-2016, 22-Jun-2016, 27-Jun-2015, 10-Jul-2014, 16-Oct-2013, 30-Jul-2013, 26-Jul-2013, 04-Apr-2013, 14-Oct-2011, 12-Aug-2011, 10-Oct-2010 and 20-Aug-2010).

In addition, it is expected that the government of Trinidad and Tobago will declare a one-off non-working public holiday in 2017 in Trinidad and Tobago, in recognition of the indigenous Amerindian community, based on the promise made, a couple of months ago (30-Oct-2016), by the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago, Keith Rowley to the Carib/First Pepole community. Traditionally (15-Oct-2013 and 02-Sep-2007), the First Peoples' requests have always involved the declaration of a non-working public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago on October 14, but last October's announcement by Prime Minister Rowley, the Chief of Santa Rosa First Peoples Community, Ricardo Bharath-Hernandez, pointed out that, next year, October 14 will fall on a Saturday, and that he would prefer a holiday during the week, because a public holiday on a Saturday or Sunday is like a "semi-holiday".
