How to Write: Resignation Letter

Prairie Tokki LV 10 21-10-06 606

On average a person in Canada will hold 15 different jobs! Because of that you will need to quit many of them. 

 

In Canada it's custom that you give employers at least 2 weeks notice that you are quitting a job. Sometimes you will be able to just talk to then but many times a formal resignation (quitting) letter is best. 

 

The template for writing a resignation letter for a job is:

  • Date (put the date of the day when you're handing in your resignation letter)
  • Statement of Resignation (this is just telling the employer you're quitting)
  • End date (the last day you will be working there, remember try to make it at least 2 weeks in the future)
  • Gratitude (thanking the employer for the job)
  • Transition details (this is just for your employer to tell you if you have to do anything extra before you leave)
