Canada Day is less than a week away, and after just having the day off for Saint-Jean-Baptiste I'm feeling pretty spoiled with these two consecutive mid-week breaks. If you're not going to be spending your day moving house, then it's the perfect opportunity to get out and enjoy the city. Maybe even go watch the parade? If you are going to be out and about, it's good to know what's open and closed in Montreal so as to avoid any confusion and/or disappointment, and that's where we come in. Here's a list of what's open and closed in Montreal this Canada Day.
