Ayer me acosté con la noción de que hoy era un día festivo en Canadá, pero esta mañana, vi en chat a un amigo y su mensaje decía… algo así como "@ work", él vive en Toronto… y yo aunque vivo en la provincia de Quebec, trabajo en Ottawa.

Cuando vi ese mensaje pensé "Oh Dios, tenía que trabajar hoy" (Ojo eso pasa después de estar una semana de vacaciones plus una semana de training… estos días hasta monté a caballo aquí en Gatineau, algo que no hacia desde que estuve en la universidad!!!)… En fin, pensé que sería útil compartir la lista de los días festivos en Canadá (ambos a nivel provincial y a nivel nacional).

Public holidays and other important dates.
