CANADIAN & BC ‘STAT’ HOLIDAYS FOR VICTORIA, BC

Canada has a number of ‘stat’ (or statutory) holidays, as does BC.  It’s good to know as often facilities such as banks will be closed.  Also travel can be a bit more of a challenge – if you’re planning on traveling by ferry to the mainland be aware that there may be long waits unless you make a reservation.
