Father’s Day 2019 and 2020

Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday in June in Canada, the same date as in the US where this observance originated approximately a century ago. It is not a holiday but is widely observed by people across the nation.

Canada keeps up Father’s Day by expressing thankfulness and affection to its Dads, giving cards, chocolates, and other gifts, and taking Dad out for dinner. Grandfathers, step or foster fathers, and even uncles are also often honoured on Father’s Day as much as one’s biological father.

One tradition some people have followed over the years is wearing red roses to honour their fathers. And if they don a white rose, that means their father has already passed away but is still very much remembered and appreciated.
