The government of Ecuador has confirmed the dates of non-working public holidays in Ecuador, for the upcoming calendar year 2021.

The aforementioned list of non-working public holidays in Ecuador in 2021, as were those of 2020 (2019-11-07), are based on the Suplemento Registro Oficial No.906 (2016-12-21, 2016-12-13, 2016-10-16), which amended the 2003 "Ley Orgánica de Servicio Civil y Carrera Administrativa y de Unificación y Homologación de las Remuneraciones del Sector Público" (2003-12-04), by virtue of which most Ecuadorean public holidays' day off are moved to the nearest weekend, and also applies to regional public holidays in Ecuador ("Si es un feriado local, se hace lo mismo, se cambia a lunes, se hace un puente").

Since then, that regulation was changed a few times with the rules governing the public holidays of Ecuador (2019-04-29, 2019-04-25, 2017-03-29, 2018-04-26).
