What's Open and Closed Victoria Day Monday in Mississauga

 

This year, Victoria Day falls on Monday, May 18, 2020.

This year, many things that are typically open will be closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Mississauga has also banned the sale and use of fireworks in order to prevent gatherings. 

Residents are asked to refrain from inviting friends and family over for Victoria Day celebrations, as gatherings of more than five people are currently not permitted by the province of Ontario.

Restaurants will still not be permitted to offer dine-in service, but some might still be open for takeout and delivery. To see a list of Mississauga restaurants that have indicated they’re offering takeout and/or delivery over the course of the pandemic, click here.
