You are entitled to receive reasonable notice or pay in lieu of notice. After so many years of employment the employment standards act and its minimum requirements would not apply to you. Generally, in determining what is reasonable notice Courts look at several factors including the length of time you worked for the employer, your age, your position, the likelihood of finding new employment etc.At the high end, if you were in a managerial position, the Court would likely order one month's notice or pay in lieu of notice for each year of employment. If you were not in a managerial position the Court would order somewhat less.
