Civic Holiday 2024 in Ontario: When the Statutory Holidays in Canada?

Although eastern regions of Prince Edward Island, Labrador and Quebec won’t have a civic holiday this Year, most of the rest will celebrate the long-awaited long weekend. The first annual Civic Holiday in Prince Edward Island was in 1876 when the island was still part of Canada. This celebration marks the beginning of the First World War. Although many names differ due to immigration and settlement, the actual date is still the same.

How do you celebrate a civic holiday in Prince Edward Island?

There are several options. You can get together with friends and family to celebrate at a local restaurant or pub or head downtown where there will be no crowds. Most restaurants here have an outdoor patio area for gatherings, but if you want a more formal setting, you can try venues like the Prince Rupert Hotel & Casino or the Rideau Country Club.

In addition to the three events mentioned above, the provincial government has designated July as “Edin Day”, or province-wide children’s awareness month. To support this, they’ve also established four municipalities across the island (Charlottetown, Bridgetown, New Glasgow and St. John’s) that celebrate this long weekend once a year. Every Year, these municipalities hold an event in which local children put on a parade down the streets of the different cities to raise funds for a particular charity. For this charitable event, children in attendance exchange their homemade crafts (quilts, pottery, etc.) for tickets to the regatta day festivities.
