Canadians have been celebrating the harvest and other blessings officially as an annual holiday since November 6, 1879. It was commonly observed with no fixed date on the third Monday in October and since 1957 on the second Monday in October. I am sot thankful and blessed for my health, family and a roof over my head and food on my table. I am grateful for our amazing Z1035 listeners that allow me to do what I love every day. Let’s all try to help those who need our assistance and make a positive difference in their lives. Wishing you and your loved ones all the best and Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Share you thankful thoughts and love on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages.

“Today, across the country, Canadians will gather with friends and family to celebrate Thanksgiving.
“Thanksgiving is a time to celebrate the harvest season and give thanks for our many blessings. It’s a chance to appreciate our communities, and find new ways to give back. As we recognize the people who make a difference in our lives, we take time to reflect on how we can show more compassion to those most in need.
“Today, we also honour members of the Canadian Armed Forces, past and present. Each day, they make sacrifices to help build a safer, more peaceful world for everyone.
“This holiday, I encourage all Canadians to celebrate our connections and seek new ways to strengthen them. Canada is strong because of the care and stewardship that people bring to communities across our country. Let’s celebrate our neighbours near and far, and do our part to make Canada an even better place to call home.
“On behalf of the Government of Canada, Sophie and I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving filled with good company, joy, and peace.”
