Q: Canada Day is one of the busiest days of the year for this. What is it?
In fact, Canada Day is one of the busiest days of the year for moving, says John Levi, president of the Canadian Association of Movers (CAM), which represents 300 moving companies across the country. If Canadians decide to move, Levi says, they will do it between mid-June and early September. And, they will certainly take advantage of two long weekends. “It’s because children are out of school, people take vacations – it has been a tradition in this country that people move at this time of the year.”
Just in these three months, according to Levi’s data, the moving industry makes up 70 per cent of the year’s business.
