CANADIAN NATIONAL HOLIDAYS
Canada has a number of holidays that are observed at the national level. Some have a Christian background and some are wholly secular, but all reflect Canadian traditions and history and are extended to anyone regardless of cultural or religious background.

Statutory holidays are holidays which require employers and businesses to give employees time off, or to pay them extra if they work on those days. The table below shows Canada's statutory holidays. Note that not all are observed in every part of the country.

Additionally, there are several popular holidays that are celebrated in Canada which are not marked by a statutory day off. These include Valentine's Day (February 14th), Mother's Day (second Sunday in May), Father's Day (third Sunday in June) and Hallowe'en (October 31st).

Note: in the table below, asterisks indicate non-mandatory holidays.
