Happy Family Day long weekend folks!
According to a press release from the Provincial government, this is the last year that British Columbia will celebrate Family Day on the second or third Monday of February.
As of 2019, we will officially be joining other Canadian provinces and the United States in observing this holiday in the third week of February.
“Moving Family Day is the right thing to do for businesses small and large, and is better for families who may be spread out across the country,” said Premier Horgan.
“This gives families an opportunity to schedule and spend more time with loved ones from other provinces.”
Check out our list of things to do this Family Day weekend!
