The Consejo de Gobierno of the regional government of Spain's autonomous region of las Islas Canarias, has announced the official list of 2014 regional non-working public holidays (calendario laboral) in the Canaries Islands.

The yet to be published "DECRETO de la Comunidad Autónoma de Canarias, por el que se determina el calendario de fiestas laborales de la Comunidad Autónoma de Canarias para el año 2014" contains all the nationwide Spanish public holidays and, to these, adds the May 30 "Día de Canarias".

Contrary to what other regions have done (2013-05-17 and 2013-05-11), Spain's autonomous region of las Islas Canarias has not declared Monday, October 13, 2014, as a one-off public holiday to compensate the fact that, in 2014, the Fiesta Nacional de España public holiday falls on a Sunday.

As was the case in past years (2012-09-07 and 2011-07-29), the aforementioned announcement contains the dates of the 2014 additional municipal public holidays specific to each of the individual islands that make up the Canaries.
