Here’s What’s Open and Closed This Long Weekend

Your guide to the holiday Monday

Long weekends are the best weekends! In case you were unaware, this Monday is a civic holiday. If you work in an office this is probably great news for you — though if you work in retail, not so much.

As usual, a civic holiday means there will be some closures and modified hours at establishments in the city.

Here’s what is open and closed this weekend.

All government buildings will be closed Monday including city hall, post offices, select community centres and libraries. Banks will also be closed.


On Monday, August 6th, TTC will be operating on Holiday hours, which is equivalent to Sunday hours with an earlier start time at 6 a.m. Any routes not offered on Sundays will not be running. Go Transit will be operating on Saturday schedule this coming Monday.


LCBO/Beer Store Hours

Over the weekend, LCBO and Beer Stores will be operating on their normal Saturday and Sunday schedules. Most Beer Stores will remain open on Monday, with 420 LCBO stores open as well. Check the LCBO’s website for hours of the location nearest you.
