Premier Rachel Notley issued the following statement to recognize Family Day:
“For almost thirty years, families have taken this day to spend quality time together and rejoice with loved ones.
“Alberta has always belonged to families, so it’s fitting that we take the time to celebrate them – the big, the small, the distant, the closely knit.
“Families make us whole and keep us strong. They share our struggles, multiply our joys and remind us of who we are. Let us pause and take this time to be grateful for the families that make our province such a vibrant and diverse place to live.
“Whether bound by family or friendship, shared history or a new sense of connection, I hope you spend this time with those who love you best. In whichever form you celebrate family, this day is yours.
“Happy Family Day!”
