CITY-OWNED RECREATIONAL FACILITIES AND LEISURE CENTRES

Sorry, folks – but this Victoria Day, the majority of Edmonto’s Recreational centres will be closed in lieu of the stat.

The following, however, will remain open with reduced hours:

POST OFFICES

Whether it’s an Amazon return or an invitation – it’ll have to wait! This Victoria Day (and every stat holiday) the post office will be closed.

COSTCO

While grocery and convenience stores will be open, Costco will be unshoppable this Monday. Looks like you’ll have to get your massive hot dog fix before Labour Day! 

GOVERNMENT OFFICES

From the passport office to the DMV, all government offices will be closed on Victoria Day.

EDMONTON PUBLIC LIBRARY 

Bookworms! Unfortunately, the Edmonton Public Library will also be closed this Monday,

But there you have it, friends. Everything that’s open/closed this Victoria Day in Edmonton. Please be sure to double-check the hours of operation no matter where you’re headed and enjoy the day!
