What's Open and Closed Christmas Day in Mississauga


Christmas is Canada’s favourite holiday and Mississauga is no different. This year, Christmas Day falls on Friday, Dec. 25, 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some things that are typically open might be closed and there will be no major public events due to physical distancing restrictions.

Because Mississauga is currently in lockdown, social gatherings are prohibited and residents are asked to celebrate the holidays with members of their own household exclusively. People who live alone and single-parent families are permitted to join one other household for the holidays.
