Great information guys. I wasn't aware of such differences between the US and Canadian Catholic Church.
This is the relevant canon:
Can. 1246 §1. Sunday, on which by apostolic tradition the paschal mystery is celebrated, must be observed in the universal Church as the primordial holy day of obligation. The following days must also be observed: the Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Epiphany, the Ascension, the Body and Blood of Christ, Holy Mary the Mother of God, her Immaculate Conception, her Assumption, Saint Joseph, Saint Peter and Saint Paul the Apostles, and All Saints.
§2. With the prior approval of the Apostolic See, however, the conference of bishops can suppress some of the holy days of obligation or transfer them to a Sunday.
Of that list, in Canada we find the following:
Holy Mary the Mother of God (Holy Day of Obligation)
Nativity of our Lord Jesus Christ (Holy Day of Obligation)
Epiphany (January 6th or the Sunday after January 1, whichever comes first; this year Epiphany is celebrated on Jan. 2, next year it'll be on January 6th but still not a Holy Day of Obligation)
Ascension (transferred to Sunday)
Body and Blood of Christ (transferred to Sunday)
Immaculate Conception (abrogated)
Saint Joseph (abrogated)
Saint Peter and Saint Paul the Apostles (abrogated)
All Saints (abrogated)
