What’s open and closed Easter weekend in Montreal area


Along with all the non-essential businesses that are still closed, in respect of the province’s measures against the spread of the Covid-19, here is a list of what’s open and closed Easter weekend in Montreal for the Easter long weekend. With physical distancing rules in place and people remaining at home, not gathering with their friends or other family in prayer and celebration – many people will turn to social media or online video conferencing and chat platforms like Zoom and Skype instead. It will at least offer an opportunity for them to be in touch and share traditions. Please remember there are also many others who will be alone, some without access to online services – and if you can, please reach out to them. A simple phone call can make a big difference and brighten up their day.
