What's Open/Closed This Canada Day Long Weekend

Happy Canada Day long weekend!!!!! It’s going to be a sunny, hot one and we couldn’t be happier.

So what will be open and closed this weekend?

The provincial government has new legislation that allows the retail industry to honour Canada Day on July 1, which happens to fall on a Sunday this year. Meaning all the stores, grocery and malls (including the NSLC) will be closed Sunday BUT open Monday

God bless the Gateway Meat Market that never closes and will be open all long weekend! If you run low on Alcohol, Bishop’s Cellar will be open Sunday 12-8


Halifax Transit will run on regular Sunday service and a holiday service schedule on Monday, with the Alderney Ferry offering free service on Canada Day from 7:30 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. on Monday.  Riders are encouraged to bring a food or cash donation for Feed Nova Scotia in lieu of paying their fare. 


There will be no municipal curbside collection on Canada Day. Services will resume on Monday, July 2.

Have a safe and fun long weekend!
