Family Day is set to take place on February 17th in Toronto, New Brunswick, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Family day was established to create a day for people to spend with their families, and it also provides an extra day off between New Year’s Day and Good Friday. It is not a statutory holiday and, therefore, all federal employees work on the day.

When it comes to a meal at Church’s Chicken, you’re going to need a bigger plate. We start making chicken from scratch, marinate it for twelve hours, and use the best hand-battered breading and honey-butter over biscuit drizzling to give you the best comfort food available. Make sure you fuel your family with the best fried chicken in Toronto on Family Day this year.
