It’s Family Day long weekend. Here’s what will be open and closed this holiday Monday



Some businesses are closed Monday due to the Family Day long weekend.

In Ontario, Family Day is one of the nine statutory holidays observed in Ontario – but it is not federally recognized.

There are a lot of things to do this Family Day long weekend, like the Canadian International Auto Show at the Metro Convention Centre and Winter Stations at Woodbine Beach.

As residents take advantage of the extra long weekend to see loved ones, drivers in Toronto will want to take note that they can no longer park for free on the street. Toronto police decided to change this for all statutory holidays, citing the “evolving needs of our growing city, where the demand for parking has significantly increased.”

Banks, schools, government offices and libraries will be closed, but Canada Post offices will be open. Here is what will be open and closed on Family Day in Toronto this year.
