Construction Holiday
Construction Holiday – In the province of Quebec, Canada, the Construction Holiday is the most popular time for summer vacations. This holiday begins the 2nd last Sunday of July every year lasting for a period of 2 weeks, and the holiday came into effect officially in the summer of 1971. Many Quebecers outside the construction industry also take their holidays during these two weeks, and it is the busiest time of year for the province’s tourism industry.
Jean Baptiste Day – June 24 was a holiday honoring French Canada’s patron saint, St. John the Baptist, which is why it is commonly known as La Saint-Jean-Baptiste. The festivities occur on June 23 and 24 and are celebrated all over Quebec.
Flag Day – Québec Flag Day commemorates the first flying of the flag of Quebec, January 21, 1948.
