Civic Holiday events start on Friday July 30. The Civic Holiday is the first Monday of August and offers a long weekend holiday during the summer vacation season in Canada……. a perfect time for family day activities, events and festivals. This day is not a statutory holiday so most stores and businesses will be open. All government agencies – including banks and the post office – will be closed.
