The first Monday of August is a civic holiday and observed by most Canadian provinces. Often referred to as the August Long Weekend, in Ontario, this civic holiday is known in many parts as Simcoe Day. This weekend may also be one of the busiest weekends on the Ontario highways as weekend warriors set off camping or to the cottage to enjoy the much anticipated weekend. This year, the civic holiday (Simcoe Day) falls on August 7th, 2017. Although this is a day off for many, it is not a statutory holiday in Ontario.
Provinces that also celebrate the August holiday are:
- Civic Holiday – Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and in parts of Ontario and Nova Scotia
- Heritage Day – Alberta
- Natal Day – Various parts of Nova Scotia
- New Brunswick Day
- Saskatchewan Day
- British Columbia Day
Quebec, Yukon, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland and Labrador do not observe this holiday.
