Family Day Weekend for St. Louis Students
Due to the observance of Family Day in Ontario, St. Louis Adult Learning and Continuing Education Centres will not be offering courses or programs on Saturday, February 19th or Monday, February 21st. All in-person and online classes will resume on Tuesday, February 22nd.
What can I do this weekend?
Family Day is a Provincial Statutory Holiday that only a few Canadian Provinces observe. In Ontario, Family Day isn’t recognized as a holiday by the federal government. Therefore, federal civil servants do not have the day off. However, many stores, city services and attractions in Waterloo region will be either closed or operating on reduced schedules. Visit your local City of Kitchener, City of Waterloo, City of Cambridge or Region of Waterloo websites for local activities and services this weekend.
Family Day meaning
Family Day was originally created to give people time to spend with their families. It also provides a day off between New Years Day and Good Friday – adding a welcomed long weekend. We hope you will take this time to connect with your families both natural and chosen, near and far, however you are able to.
Continue to keep our communities safe and see you next week!
