Labour Day History
Labour Day is a celebration of Canadian workers' social and economic achievements. Until 1892, unions were illegal in Canada's archaic British law system, making it incredibly difficult for workers to strike and demand better working conditions. The foundation for Labour Day were laid in March of 1872 when the Toronto Typographical Union demanded a 9-hour work day. When its demands weren't met, the employees went on strike and were subsequently arrested according to the law.
