Family Day for British Columbians falls on the second Monday in February. That makes Monday Feb. 10, 2014 the day to plan for your activities this year.

This will be the second year B.C. celebrates Family Day. The holiday was first introduced in Alberta in 1990, and has since been embraced by other provinces, although it is not a federal holiday.

Premier Christy Clark made the institution of B.C. Family Day one of her electoral promises when she was running for leadership of the BC Liberals. The second Monday in February was settled on in order to avoid clashing with other province's holidays and Presidents' Day in the U.S., which run on the third Monday of the same month.

This year, Whistler Blackcomb is offering residents of B.C. 50 per cent off lift tickets, to encourage families to hit the slopes together.
