Labour Day Weekend

Always held on the first Monday in September, Labour Day was created to campaign for the rights and to celebrate the achievements of workers by giving them the day off work to reconnect, leisure, and passion. Its origins in Canada can be traced back to the Toronto Printers Union in December 1872.

Whether you want to cheer your favourite team during CFL Labour Day Classic games, watch fireworks or join for agricultural and harvest fairs, there is something in this list for you to end your summer holidays on a high note!
