Civic Holiday is a public holiday in Canada celebrated on the first Monday in August.
Though the first Monday of August is celebrated in most of Canada as a public holiday, it is only officially known as “Civic Holiday”.
Food Day or Food Day Canada is a culinary celebration that originated in Canada as “The World’s Longest BBQ” in reaction to the BSE crisis of 2003. This economic crisis for farmers was a trade embargo by the US on Canadian beef, based on a single case of BSE (or mad cow disease) in Alberta, Canada. Since that year, Food Day has evolved into a celebration by chefs from across Canada. Food Day happens every day in Canada on the Saturday of the August long weekend (also known as the Civic Holiday Weekend). Food Day was founded by Canadian culinary pioneer, Anita Stewart.
October is Car Safety Month, the perfect time to fall into a vehicle maintenance program and get your car ready for the challenges of harsh winter weather. A thorough inspection of your vehicle during Car Safety Month will go a long way toward ensuring safety and dependability when temperatures drop and severe winter weather strikes. A routine maintenance program also makes financial sense, extending useful vehicle life and helping avoid costly repairs down the road.
