Canada will observe a Day of Mourning for Queen Elizabeth II on Sept. 19.

Queen Elizabeth II served as Queen of the United Kingdom, Canada and the Commonwealth for 70 years until her death on Sept. 8 at the age of 96. The funeral service is 11 a.m. (BST) on Sept. 19 at Westminster Abbey, London.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Sept. 19 will be a national holiday and day of mourning for federal workers across Canada.

But Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced the province would have a Day of Mourning in lieu of a provincial holiday.

“The people of Ontario may observe a moment of silence at 1 p.m. on that day,” Ford said.

Here’s what’s open and closed in Mississauga on Sept. 19:

Closed: 

  • Federal government offices
  • Passport offices
  • Canada Post (no mail pickup or delivery) 

Open: 

  • Shopping centres including Square One, Erin Mills Town Centre, Dixie Outlet Mall, Heartland Town Centre and Sherway Gardens  
  • Box stores including Walmart

  • City of Mississauga programs and services will be open and operating on a regular schedule but the city will pause all operations, including all MiWay buses, for 96 seconds (the age of The Queen at the time of her passing) at 1 p.m. on Monday to observe the provincial moment of silence.
  • Libraries will operate on their regular schedule; those normally open on Mondays will be open on Sept. 19 and those normally closed will be closed.
