Thanks for the experience!

Seller - Tyler CorbettIt was great working with the Salisbury Team!  I really appreciated Timothy’s professionalism and honesty in quoting a price on my home.  He told me what I needed to hear, ‘the facts’ to get my home sold!  I listened and my home sold quickly!  Glad to be moving forward.  Thanks for the experience!

Civic Holiday

Civic Holiday is the most widely used name for a public holiday celebrated in most of Canada on the first Monday in August.

civic-holidayIn Ontario, the holiday was renamed Simcoe Day in Toronto effective 1969 in honour of the first Lieutenant-Governor of Upper Canada and the promulgator of the Act Against Slavery, but a motion at the Ontario Municipal Association to extend the name change province-wide failed.  According to a 2005 proclamation this name continues to apply in the present amalgamated city of Toronto.  The Civic Holiday is now known by one of a number of local appellations such as Colonel By Day in Ottawa, George Hamilton Day in Hamilton, Joseph Brant Day in Burlington, Founders’ Day in Brantford, McLaughlin Day in Oshawa, Alexander Mackenzie Day in Sarnia, James Cockburn Day in Cobourg, Peter Robinson Day in Peterborough, and John Galt Day in Guelph, Mark Delorme Day in Sudbury, Ontario, as well as numerous other names in smaller municipalities.  When not given a local name, it is often referred to civic-holiday2as the ‘Civic Holiday’.  Although a work holiday is given to employees of the federal and many municipal governments, the Government of Ontario has not defined this day as a statutory holiday and it is not mentioned in either Ontario’s Employment Standards Act or Retail Business Holidays Act.  The

Scotiabank Caribbean Cultural Festival, formerly known as Caribana, is held this holiday

weekend in Toronto, coinciding with Emancipation Day.
