Time goes by so very fast. Why, it seems like yesterday we were celebrating Christmas and look it’s already March. We’re sharing this list of Philippine and Canadian Holidays in March for two reasons. First, so that you can schedule time with your friends and loved ones. And second, so that you don’t go to Philippine and Canadian government offices when they’re closed. Believe it or not, marami tayong kababayan who go and try to get their passports renewed at the Embassy or Consulates here in Canada only to find out that it’s a national holiday in the Philippines.
In case you haven’t heard, the Philippine Embassy and Consulates are closed on both Philippine and Canadian holidays. So please check before you go to avoid disappointment.
March 29 – Maundy Thursday (PH only)
March 30 – Good Friday (PH & CAD – all provinces except Quebec)
March 31 – Black Saturday (PH only)
Again, both the Canadian embassy and consulates in the Philippines, and the Philippine Embassy and consulates in Canada are closed on all three days.
