BC To Host First Annual Family Day – February 2013

Another holiday to look forward to? Yes please! Whether we we’d like to admit it or not, we never spend as much time with our family as we’d like too. Our busy lives & conflicting schedules always get in the way with what matters most: family.

Fortunately, B.C. has joined the list of numerous Canadian cities and will will hold its first official Family Day Monday February 11th 2013.

How did Family Day land in BC? – Christy Clark.
She included the idea in her campaign and promised to bring in the new holiday on the third Monday of February to create a break between New Year’s Day and Easter. Family Day was first held in Alberta in 1990 and has caught on in other provinces, but is not a federal holiday.

There will be a handful of Family Day activities in the lower mainland including the Canucks Alumni Game. Be sure to check back with us as we will be providing coverage for all the upcoming events.
