Notes:

[9] Statutory holiday in British Columbia (British Columbia Day), New Brunswick (New Brunswick Day), Northwest Territories (Civic Holiday), Nunavut (Civic Holiday), and Saskatchewan (Saskatchewan Day). Civic holiday (may be a paid vacation day depending on employer) in Alberta (Heritage Day), Manitoba (Civic Holiday), Ontario (John Galt Day + Simcoe Day + others), Nova Scotia (Natal Day is an optional holiday), Prince Edward Island (Federal Civic Holiday). Not observed in Newfoundland and Labrador, Quebec, or Yukon.

[15] In parts of Canada, the term "Civic Holiday"is a generic name referring to the annual holiday on the first Monday of August. However, this definition is far from uniform nationwide as three provinces and one territory do not recognize it at all, and five other provinces do not oblige employers to offer holiday pay on this day, thus making it a civic holiday in the legal sense. No universal name is recognized for this holiday — the official name varies between the provinces and even between municipalities within Ontario. This holiday is commonly referred to as "August Long Weekend"but this is not a government term.

[16] This is a civil observance in Canada and it is generally not taken as holiday.

[13] This is celebrated mainly in the capital city of Charlottetown on the third Friday in August marking the end of the Provincial Exhibition and the Gold Cup and Saucer race at the Charlottetown Driving Park, which is a bank and contract holiday for some Civil Servants (others get the first Monday of August as a Civic Holiday).
