Did you know?

During the mid-1840s, Queen Victoria’s birthday was celebrated as a holiday in Canada West on the 24th of May. It became closely associated with Empire Days through the 1890s, and was adopted by Parliament in 1901 as a national day of celebration.

Victoria Day is a Canadian federal holiday. Since 1952, it has been observed on the last Monday before May 25.
