Sample resignation letter Ontario (6)

As an employee working for any company in Ontario, you may be concerned about leaving on good terms, getting a good reference, keeping the door open, and how your resignation letter can help you quit your job professionally.

There are many resignation templates or termination letter templates that can help you achieve this, here we will include a few.

Submitting a formal resignation would be making your formal statement of leaving if you have already talked to your employer about it.

The main point to consider when writing your resignation letter are:

  • Your name and your current job role.
  • The addressee or recipient of your letter (i.e. HR manager, hiring manager, or your line manager).
  • The reason why you are resigning but without having to be too specific.
  • The notice period, which for most companies is a standard to give at least 2 weeks’ notice before leaving.
  • The date you will be handing in your resignation letter.
  • A proper closing such as “Best wishes” or Best regards” and your name and signature.

Subject: Letter of Resignation

Dear (insert the name of your boss or bosses here),

This is to let you know that I am resigning from (name of your current employer here) as of today. To help make sure that there is a smooth transition for you and the team I will gladly stay on for two more weeks and assist as best I can.

The reason that I’m leaving is that I found a new job that is closer to my home and is in an industry sector I want to gain more experience in.

I have greatly enjoyed my time working with you here. You have always been there for me and the company has been too. I will truly miss everyone here.

Hopefully, the two weeks of notice I am giving you today will show you that I am resigning in good faith. You and I should meet as soon as possible to discuss how we might work together to make the most of my remaining time here.

Sincerely,

(your name here)”
