British Columbia Public Holidays 2024, 2025, and 2026

This page contains a calendar of all 2024, 2025, and 2026 statutory and provincial holidays for British Columbia. These dates may be modified as official changes are announced, so please check back regularly for updates.

British Columbia celebrates ten statutory holidays throughout the province. On these holidays, schools, businesses and offices are closed to allow employees to celebrate with their friends and families. In some cases, if the holiday falls on a weekend, it is celebrated on either the Friday before or the Monday after.

British Columbia Day is celebrated on the first Monday in August in celebration of the naming of the province in 1871.
