In 2019, Canada Day falls on Monday, July 1st.
What Is Canada Day?
Canada Day is observed on July 1 each year in Canada, celebrating the “birthday” of Canada—the July 1, 1867 enactment of the Constitution Act which united three British colonies into a new country called Canada. Memorial Day is observed together with Canada Day in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. This holiday commemorates the brave efforts of the veterans of that province, particularly those who served in World War I. Canadians also celebrate Remembrance Day in November, to honor all who served in the Canadian Armed Forces.
