Canadian Public Holidays (National & Provincial)

I look this info up on a regular basis, and figure others do the same.

Canada Post delivers Monday through Friday except on National, Provincial (or Territorial) Holidays. Government agencies are generally closed on these days, along with banks and some shops.

January 1 | Sunday – New Year’s Day (National) – No mail on Monday the 2nd

April 6 | Friday – Good Friday (National)

April 9 | Monday – Easter Monday (National)

May 21 | Monday – Victoria Day (National)

July 1 | Sunday – Canada Day (National)

August 6 | Monday – Civic Holiday (National)

September 3 | Monday – Labour Day (National)

October 8 | Monday – Thanksgiving Day (National)

November 11 | Sunday – Remembrance Day (National)

December 25 | Tuesday – Christmas Day (National)

December 26 | Wednesday – Boxing Day (National)

When a holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, it may be applied to the next business day. For more info see Canada Post’s Official Holiday Scheduale
