Canada, Let’s Officially Name the August Long Weekend the Longust Weekend

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


The Labour Day Long Weekend has a name. Canada Day Long Weekend has a name. But what about the August Long Weekend? In provinces and territories across Canada, the August Long Weekend has a plethora of names - but not one name that all of Canada can agree upon. Some provinces and territories don't even have an official holiday at all.

That's why Hotels.com invited Canadians to come together to #NameThatWeekend.

People all over Canada submitted their name ideas. Then, we compiled a shortlist and let Canadians vote for themselves. The people spoke, and the winning name was indisputably the Longust Weekend. Now, we want to make this name official.

Help us appeal to the Minister of Canadian Heritage to introduce a bill to the House of Commons that would officially make the first Monday of August a federal holiday called Longust Day. That way, the August Long Weekend will finally have a nationally accepted name.

Join us in recognizing Canada's most overlooked and underrated weekend by signing this petition now.
