This year, Victoria Day falls on Monday, May 24, 2021.
Many things that are typically open will be closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Residents are asked to refrain from inviting friends and family over for Victoria Day celebrations, as social gatherings are not permitted due to the provincial Stay-at-Home order.
Restaurants will still not be permitted to offer dine-in service, but some might still be open for takeout and delivery.
