Happy holidays, Montreal! As the Christmas festivities quickly approach, you might be planning some family dinners, get-togethers with friends and lots of winter outings, so knowing what's open and closed this Christmas Eve might come in handy.

We've compiled a partial list of what will be open and closed on December 24, 2022, in Montreal. Although most stores will be open on reduced hours, we always recommend giving a place of business a phone call before heading on over to avoid any holiday mishaps, as many local and independent spots across Montreal might operate on different hours.

What's open:

  • 311 (Montreal's information hotline)
  • Pharmacies
  • Banks (most banks will run on Saturday hours)
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Most supermarkets and convenience stores (may be operating on reduced hours)
  • Shopping malls (most shopping centres and stores close at 5 p.m. on December 24)
  • Canada Post
  • SAQ (outlets will close at 5 p.m. on December 24)
  • SQDC (locations that are not on strike will be open, hours may vary)
  • Jean-Talon and Atwater Market will remain open until 4 p.m.
  • Cinemas
  • STM (bus lines and metro will operate normally on December 24)
