CalendarHolidays provides you with a list of 2023 statutory holidays in British Columbia that are distinct from national holidays observed across Canada. The westernmost province in Canada is British Columbia, which lies between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains. BC is the fourth most populous region and one of the ten provinces of Canada. Its capital is Victoria, the fifteenth-largest metropolitan area in Canada, named after Queen Victoria. Currently, British Columbia is regulated by John Horgan, the New Democratic Party Head.
Its name originates from an American ship, the Columbia Rediviva, which designated its name for the Columbia River and the whole region. The largest city in BC is Vancouver, situated at the convergence of the Fraser River and Georgia Strait in the mainland's southwest corner. Vancouver is the third-largest film production city in North America, and its film industry is recognized as the Hollywood North after Los Angeles and New York City. Its climate precipitates outdoor entertainment and tourism, but its primary long-term economic origins are resource extraction, logging, farming, and mining.
It is more likely that people are more willing to know about their province of British Columbia's statutory holidays than holidays from other regions. All holidays are described with real facts about the specific festival so that you can understand how and why people celebrate a particular holiday. There are five national statutory holidays and five provincial statutory holidays in British Columbia. Some specific holidays are only observed in British Columbia, such as British Columbia Day, celebrated on the first Monday in August. It's a provincial statutory holiday in BC, but this day is similar to Civic Day in other Canadian provinces.
