There will be lots going on this Labour Day Weekend, but as always not everything will be open Monday.

Government offices, banks and libraries will be closed Monday. So will most grocery stores and all LCBO locations. There is no mail delivery.

While most malls will be closed, a number of shopping  destinations around the city will remain open for business. They include Pacific Mall and Vaughan Mills (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.), as well as the Eaton Centre (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Bramalea City Centre and Square One (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.).

The TTC will be running on a holiday service schedule.


There will be a number of events taking place as well.

  • The CNE wraps up with The Canadian International Air Show, which takes place Staurday, Sunday and Monday.
  • On Monday the Annual Toronto & York Region Labour Day Parade will make its way along Queen Street from University Avenue to the Dufferin Gates at Exhibition Place. The parade starts at 9:30 a.m.
  • The Brazilian Day Canada Festival will also get underway Monday from 1:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Dundas Square. The event will feature traditional Brazilian music, dance and food.
  • Other regular attractions around the city – such as Centre Island, the Toronto Zoo and Canada’s Wonderland – will remain open as well.

The Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) is closed for the holiday.
