Well, friends, I don't know about you, but to me, Canada Day always means the true beginning of summer. And what better way to start off Montreal's best season than with a huge celebration of our awesome country?

There'll be fireworks, events, and good times all around - and considering this year is Canada's 150, it's sure to be an even bigger celebration!

Canada Day this year is going down on Saturday, July 1, and if you're wondering exactly WTF is open and closed in Montreal this year, no worries. I got your back. 

Shops, Markets And Stores

Entertainment Spots


Government And Businesses 

Keep in mind that these are true only for Canada Day itself, meaning the Saturday. Most people are off either the Friday or the Monday, so if you're planning an outing on either of those days, make sure you call ahead... and have an awesome Canada Day!
