Introduction to Civic Holiday

Civic Holiday is a well-deserved break for many people, offering a pause to appreciate the height of summer and an opportunity for communities to come together. Celebrated on the first Monday of August in most Canadian provinces, this public holiday is known by various names, such as Regatta Day and Terry Fox Day in different regions. Traditionally, people mark the day with picnics, festivals, and outdoor activities, embracing a collective spirit of leisure and community pride. The holiday is punctuated with a range of emotions, from the joy of a day off work to the appreciation of local culture and heritage.
