Every July, construction workers in Quebec get a two week holiday. This has been going on since 1971, and it’s a little reward that construction workers get for working so hard.

From July 21st to August 3rd, construction workers can do whatever they want. You can choose to stay in Quebec, or venture out to Ontario or even the Maritimes. Why not book a last minute RV trip? These trips you can do with friends, family, or even by yourself. It’s your vacation!
