Today is a holiday for some provinces in Canada.

It is Discovery Day in Newfoundland and Labrador and St. John's Day in the capital city.

Discovery Day falls on the first Monday on or after June 24, to coincide with the arrival of John Cabot on the island in 1497.

In Quebec, it is Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day.

It is a public holiday in Quebec. It was brought to Canada by French settlers celebrating the traditional feast day of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist.
