Here’s What’s Open and Closed in Toronto on Canada Day

Published:

Canada Day is quickly approaching, and this year, July 1 just so happens to fall on a Friday, meaning those of us lucky enough to have the day off will get to enjoy a nice long weekend.

After two years of canceled events and restricted gatherings, Canada Day celebrations are back in full force this year, just in time to celebrate Canada turning 155. If you’re planning to spend your Canada Day in Toronto, there’s a full schedule of events happening around the city, including themed festivities, food demonstrations, and fireworks.

But with Canada Day being a national statutory holiday, many stores, offices, and services will shut their doors for the day, so you’ll have to plan ahead for all of your party supply needs.

To help with that, here’s a list of what is and isn’t open on Canada Day in Toronto.

  • Government offices
