Here is what’s open and closed on Boxing Day–Dec. 26, 2022–in St. Catharines, Welland, Niagara-on-the-Lake and Niagara Falls.

Fun fact: It is called “Boxing Day” because – starting in medieval Britain – servants had a day off and would receive a gift box on this day.

This year, Boxing Day falls on a Monday. Because Christmas Day fell on a weekend, some businesses and offices will treat Tuesday, Dec. 27 as a statutory holiday (so if you plan on going out, call ahead to be sure your destination is open). A separate Dec. 27 list is at the bottom.
