Canada Day is often informally referred to as "Canada's birthday", particularly in the popular press. Canada Day is observed on July 1, unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case July 2 is the statutory holiday. Celebratory events will generally still take place on July 1, even though it is not the legal holiday. Canadian expatriates will often organize Canada Day activities in their local area on or near the date of the holiday.
