2022 Holidays Canada

What are the main holidays in Canada? As with most countries, Canada's national holidays generally mark religious, quasi-religious or patriotic occasions. Statutory holidays are observed by federal employees and most Canadians, although increasingly, statutory holidays are becoming days for shopping and for large sales. Below is a listing of all Canadian public holidays and Parliamentary mandated observances. Please refer to Designation of National Days and Observances publication for more more information. Have a look at our calendar with canadian public holidays pages for printable calendars with holidays in Canada.
