Canada NB Family Day Public Holiday Announced

The Premier of the Canadian Province of New Brunswick, Brian Gallant, has announced that, beginning in 2018, New Brunswick will observe Family Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in New Brunswick ion the third Monday in February.

A little more than a year ago (14-Feb-2016), the Minister of Social Development of Canada's Province of New Brunswick, Cathy Rogers, had announced that her government was preparing a bill to declare a new annual "Family Day" non-working public holiday in the Canadian Province of New Brunswick, possibly beginning in 2017, which would have meant that the Canadian Province of New Brunswick would join many other Canadian provinces which have declared an annual non-working public holiday in February over the past years: the third Monday of February for almost 2 decades in the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan, since 2008 by Ontario and Manitoba (11-Oct-2007 and 26-Sep-2007) and later by the Province of Prince Edward Island (24-Apr-2009, 27-Nov-2008, 06-Apr-2008), then since 2013 in British Columbia (31-Jan-2013, 29-May-2012, 11-May-2012, 05-Oct-2011, and 03-Feb-2011), albeit on the second Monday of February, rather than the third Monday of February, and most recently in Nova Scotia (28-Jun-2014 and 06-Dec-2013).

In 2010 (06-Sep-2010), the then Premier of New Brunswick, Shawn Graham, had announced that his government, if re-elected, would declare a new annual provincial public holiday, Family Day, on the third Monday of February, but his government was defeated in that year's autumn elections (28-Sep-2010), leaving the promise unheeded.
