Celebrated annually on the first Monday in September, Labour Day is a huge celebration in Canada. After Labour Day was declared a legal holiday by the Parliament of Canada on July 23rd 1894, the celebration was moved to the early fall, where it has remained ever since.
The day originally gave workers the chance to campaign for better working conditions or pay, but in modern times the day is now part of a long weekend of celebrations and an opportunity to enjoy the last of the summer sun.
