Monday holiday for the Journée nationale des Patriotes

The Journée nationale des Patriotes (National Patriots Day), which replaced the Fête de Dollard, has been celebrated since 2003 on the Monday before May 25. It commemorates the struggle of the Patriots in 1837-1838 for the recognition of their nation, political freedom and the establishment of a democratic government. At the federal level and in other provinces, this public holiday is dedicated to Victoria Day.
