Family Day is the name of a public holiday in South Africa, in the Canadian provinces of Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, and Ontario, in the American states of Arizona and Nevada, in Vanuatu, in Vietnam and (as "Family & Community Day") in the Australian Capital Territory.

Family & Community Day was celebrated on the first Tuesday of November in 2007, 2008 and 2009, coinciding with the Melbourne Cup. This public holiday was declared in 2007 under section 3(1)(b) of the Holidays Act 1953 (ACT). It was announced in 2008 that it would continue on Melbourne Cup Day in 2008 and 2009. Mr. Andrew Barr, the ACT Minister for Industrial Relations stated the purpose of the new public holiday was:

In parts of Canada, Family Day is a statutory holiday occurring on the third Monday in February. In the provinces of Manitoba and Prince Edward Island, the statutory holiday on this date is instead termed Louis Riel Day and Islander Day, respectively. As of 2013, slightly under two-thirds of Canadians will live in a province that observes the third Monday in February as a statutory holiday. The timing of Family Day coincides with Presidents Day in the United States.

The third Monday in February is a regular working day in Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the territories. British Columbia will begin to celebrate Family Day in 2013. As Family Day is not currently recognized in the federal sphere, federal employees in all provinces (such as public servants and postal workers) still work on this day. In Newfoundland and Labrador, the third Monday of February is a school board holiday, but not an official provincial holiday.
