Petition to #UniteFamilyDay Across Canada | 02/11/2016

Family Day was originally created to give people time off to spend with their families. In 2012, Premier Christy Clark decided to pass the Family Day Act establishing B.C.'s very own 'Family Day'. Our Family Day occurs on the 2nd Monday in February, which is out of sync with the rest of the country who celebrate on the 3rd Monday. 

Family Day is a fantastic idea but like many other hard working individuals in B.C., I am unable to spend it with my family. Business owners and employees who conduct business across Canada have to work on B.C. Family Day, in addition to the Family Day observed by the rest of the country. Supporters of this petition have also indicated it does not align with visiting relatives across the country or for parents who have to work and arrange for child care. Further discontent is created as it is misaligned with cross-border business and relatives who observe a statutory holiday (Presidents’ Day) on the third Monday in February.

The petition has gained over 18,500 supporters and local media coverage. See Andrew's #UniteFamilyDay Petition and full media coverage on change.org
