How Did Family Day Get Its Start?

Family Day is celebrated on the third Monday of every February. Though not an official national holiday, the event is celebrated far and wide across the country, with dozens of family festivals and things to do organized each year in the provinces where it’s observed: New Brunswick, Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, and British Columbia. (NOTE: Interestingly, the same day is a statutory holiday in three other provinces and one territory too, but for different reasons. Manitoba celebrates Louis Riel Day, Nova Scotia and Yukon celebrate Heritage Day, and in Prince Edward Island, they celebrate Islander Day.)
