On Friday, September 30th, Canada will be recognizing for a second year in a row National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.

National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, previously known as “Orange Shirt Day”, is a day meant to honour the children who never returned home and the survivors of Canada's Residential School system, as well as their families and communities.

The Canadian government has announced September 30th as a federal statutory holiday. A day where Canadians can take the day to reflect and learn about our country’s traumatic history.

While the day is recognized federally and not provincially, we wanted to break down a quick list of what will be open and closed this Friday in Montreal:


  • Pharmacies
  • Grocery stores
  • Restaurants
  • Museums
  • SAQs
  • Sports arenas, fields, and stadiums
  • Waste and recycling management
  • Schools, CEGEPs, and universities
  • The SAAQ
  • Public transit
  • Libraries
  • Retail stores
  • Community centres
  • Provincially regulated government buildings and services
