In all provinces and territories, Canada Day is a statutory (public) holiday. This year, July 1 falls on a Wednesday, a regular working day for most. Many Canada Day celebrations are moving online this year as the provinces, territories and the country continues to live through the COVID-19 pandemic.
In Quebec, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day, Fête nationale du Québec et de la Francophonie canadienne, is a statutory (public) holiday on June 24 each year. This year, June 24 falls on a Wednesday. Even during COVID-19, this day remains a public holiday.
Sunday, June 21 is the longest day of the year and marks the changing of seasons. It is also a very important day for Indigenous Peoples (First Nations, Métis, Inuit). In 1982, this day was chosen to celebrate the land and the Indigenous Peoples and their cultures. National Indigenous Peoples Day is a public (statutory) holiday in the Northwest Territories and Yukon.
