What is Canadian Thanksgiving and why do we celebrate?

Our Thanksgiving is a celebratory feast that is hosted on the second Monday of October. The origins of this celebration date back to 1879. However, it was in 1957 when the Governor-General of Canada, Vincent Massey, proclaimed that a day dedicated to general thanks to the Almighty God would be observed throughout Canada on an annual basis that the day of the holiday became cemented.

It is a time to gather friends and family together and demonstrate thanks for the plentiful produce we harvest in Canada throughout the beginning of October. While traditionally the holiday falls on the second Monday, it is not unusual for the celebrations to continue throughout the weekend. Many of us host our family feast on the Sunday prior to Canadian Thanksgiving day.

Unlike the US Thanksgiving holiday which is observed in November, we celebrate in October, as being positioned further north, our harvest comes earlier. Our holiday also has nothing to do with Pilgrims. It is merely a time of thanks that started out as a religious holiday and is now practised by the vast majority of Canadians.

As with all statutory holiday events throughout Canada, retailers have caught onto the Thanksgiving day festivities and it has become a great time to pick up some bargain buys. Whether you’re restocking your beauty bag, upgrading your home entertainment system or renovating your space, do it during the Thanksgiving day sales to secure a steal of a deal.


When is Canadian Thanksgiving?

Canadian Thanksgiving falls on the second Monday of October every year. This year it is due to be celebrated on Monday 12 October. It is a statutory holiday for most of Canada, excluding the Atlantic provinces of Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick and Newfoundland and Labrador. In these provinces, the holiday is observed as optional.


What kind of things will be on sale?

Last year we saw some great discounts across healthcare, beauty products, tech, appliances and even some leading Canadian fashion sites too. This year we’re expecting to see a surge of retailers jumping on board with the Thanksgiving sales event.


What is open on Canadian Thanksgiving?

The majority of shopping malls, restaurants and attractions will be open for business as usual throughout Thanksgiving. However, be aware that high-profile holidays drawing retailer attention tend to bring crowds of people, all of them eager to get their hands on the deals and discounts being offered during limited-time flash sale events.

We’d recommend staying home, but that doesn’t mean missing out. Curl up on your sofa, pour yourself a large glass of wine and shop, shop, shop online.
