Back To School


It’s hard to believe the Labour Day long Weekend it already upon us.  As the kids get ready for Back to School we wonder where the summer went .

Here is a little history of this long weekend.  Labour Day, the first Monday in September, has been a statutory holiday in Canada since 1894.  Historically, workers marked the day with various activities. These included parades, speeches, games, amateur competitions and picnics. The holiday promoted working-class solidarity and belonging during a time of  industrialization. Since the Second World War, fewer and fewer people have participated in Labour Day activities. Regardless,  it remains a statutory holiday. Many Canadians now spend the Labour Day holiday relaxing and having family time and preparing for the return to school.
