Happy Victoria Day!


Today, Monday, May 18 is Victoria Day in Canada.

Victoria Day was declared a Canadian holiday by the government in 1845.

When Queen Victoria died in 1901, Canada's parliament officially named the holiday Victoria Day.

Victoria Day is celebrated on the Monday preceding May 25 in every province and territory. It honours Queen Victoria's birthday.

In Quebec, this holiday is called "National Patriotes Day".
