happy fam day, ya'll...


Ontario's Family Day takes place on the third Monday of February and it is a statutory holiday. It was established on October 11, 2007, following the 2007 fall Ontario election campaign when Premier Dalton McGuinty was re-elected, and the first one on February 18, 2008. Its creation raised Ontario's number of public holidays to nine per year.[6] However, since it is not recognized at the Federal level, all Federal employees (such as public servants and postal workers) still work on this day. Also, unionized workers whose collective agreements do not yet include this holiday will continue to work on this day. All students from public and Catholic schools in Ontario have a break on this holiday, as well as most private school students.
