Mother’s Day – May 8


A popular day for gifts of flowers and greeting cards.

Many Canadians celebrate Mother’s Day by showing their appreciation for mothers or mother figures. The Mother’s Day date in Canada is on the second Sunday of May each year.

What Do People Do?

Many people in Canada express their gratitude towards mothers and mother figures on Mother’s Day. It is the time for people to thank mothers and mother figures who took the time care for them and help them through life’s challenges.

Carnations are a popular Mother’s Day symbol in both Canada and the United States. Some people may choose to wear a carnation as a brooch on Mother’s Day. However, other flowers are also given to mothers or mother figures to symbolize one’s love and appreciation for them.

Happy International Woman’s Day

Happy International Women's Day

International Women’s Day is an important day to celebrate women’s social, economic, cultural & political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Yet let’s also be aware progress has slowed in many places across the world, so urgent action is needed to accelerate gender parity.

Will you help challenge conscious and unconscious bias? Imagine a world where women and girls can thrive. This International Women’s Day, what will you do to drive gender parity? How can you help women and girls achieve their ambitions? The World Economic Forum predicts the gender gap won’t close entirely until 2133. That’s way too long to wait. Help ensure women and men’s contributions are equally valued.

Will you take action to help create an equal future where everyone’s strengths and differences are truly valued?
