Labour Day Canada

Posted by on Sunday, September 4, 2016

Labour Day in Canada is celebrated on the first Monday of September.

It originally gave workers the chance to campaign for better working conditions or pay. The day is now part of a long weekend for many Canadians.

The origins of Labour Day can be traced back to April 15, 1872, when the Toronto Trades Assembly organized Canada's first significant demonstration for worker's rights.

Post offices, many businesses, and many organizations are closed.

For most of us it is a final chance to escape to our favorite camp ground for one last time in the Summer season.
