Happy Civic Holiday

Or in other words: What on earth are we celebrating? Did you know that Civic Holidays is observed in most but not all provinces, and that each province has a different reason to celebrate it? Some examples:

Alberta: Heritage Day, in honour of diverse Canadian culture and cultures around the world

Nova Scotia: Natal Day, in honour of Halifax’s birthday

Ontario: Emancipation Day, in honour of the end of slavery in the British Empire.

Only in Toronto: Simcoe Day, in honour of the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada
