Happy BC Day!

Happy BC Day!

Vancouver, BC - In British Columbia, the first Monday of August is traditionally known as British Columbia Day or BC Day and it is almost upon us! This Monday August 7th will be a day for all British Columbians to enjoy the summer weather with friends and family. Whether you plan on staying at home for local events and activities or heading out-of-town for a vacation getaway this holiday weekend, Protec Dental Laboratories will be celebrating along with you.

The British Columbia Day Act was first introduced in 1974 by the Honorable Ernie Hall, the Provincial Secretary under Premier Dave Barrett. At this time several of Canada's other provinces were enjoying a long weekend in August. Hall along with many others thought the people of British Columbia could benefit from a holiday around August 1st. Hall proposed the bill “to recognize the pioneers of British Columbia by declaring the first Monday of August in each year to be a public holiday known as British Columbia Day."

Protec will be closed on Monday, August 7th to enjoy the festivities and natural beauty that makes this province so great. We will back, ready to serve you on Tuesday, August 8th. From all of us here at Protec, we wish you a safe and Happy BC Day!
