Terry Fox Day will take place on Monday, August 3, 2020. This weekend is also often referred to as August Long Weekend and the second last long weekend of the summer.

Since it isn’t a statutory holiday, most places will remain open. Grocery stores will maintain regular hours and malls will use Sunday hours.

Information About Terry Fox Day:
Civic Holiday (Terry Fox Day in Manitoba) is the most widely used name for a public holiday celebrated in parts of Canada on the first Monday in August, though it is only officially known by that term in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and Prince Edward Island. It is a statutory holiday in Nunavut, the Northwest Territories, and Prince Edward Island, but not in Manitoba.

U.S. Border
The August Long Weekend is often a popular time for Winnipeggers to drive down south to the United States. Due to COVID-19, the US/Canada Borders are still closed to non-essential travel, so you’ll have to make other plans.
