Stuff that’s closed

  • All LCBO and Beer Stores will be closed on Monday, so you better re-stock your supplies of Louis XIII cognac before then.
  • All public libraries and banks will also be shut on Monday, so if for some reason you’re going to need massive piles of money or books on Family Day, stock up before then.
  • Most businesses, Queen’s Park, the Toronto Stock Exchange and Toronto City Hall will also shut their doors for the holiday.
  • Post offices located in closed retail outlets

Stuff that’s open

  • The TTC will be operating on its regular holiday schedule, and Go Transit will be running on its Saturday schedule.

More details for yesterday and also today’s events around Toronto are summarized in “Toronto Family Day Activities 2013” […]
