Happy Simcoe, Civic, Terry Fox, BC, Saskatchewan, Heritage, Natal and Colonel By Day!

The legal status of the first Monday in August varies between provinces and territories. The first Monday in August is a statutory holiday in: British Columbia; Alberta; Manitoba; Ontario; Newfoundland and Labrador; Nova Scotia; PEI; New Brunswick; Saskatchewan; Nunavut and the Northwest Territories.

It is a holiday in Alberta (Heritage Day), Manitoba (Terry Fox Day), Newfoundland and Labrador (Civic Holiday, although the date is fixed by municipal council orders), Nova Scotia (Natal Day), Ontario (Civic Holiday, Simcoe Day or Colonel By Day), Prince Edward Island (Natal Day). It is important to note that while some employers in Ontario give their employees a holiday on the first Monday in August, the employer is not required to do so under Ontario’s Employment Standards Act, 2000 (ESA).

Schools, post offices, as well as many businesses and organizations are closed, while many workers have a day off in these areas. The first Monday of August is not a public holiday in Quebec and Yukon.

Next year, Simcoe Day is August 3rd.
