The second last long weekend of the summer is just around the corner, here’s what’s open and closed Civic Holiday weekend in Brampton.

What’s Open

Some recreation centres throughout Brampton are offering programs for the whole family including swimming, skating, fitness and more. To double check if yours is open, we recommend calling your local recreation centre, calling 311 or visiting to confirm program schedules.

Peel Art Gallery Museum + Archives is open Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with family Fun Day activities running between 1 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. They are also open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Civic Holiday Monday.

If you want to get in some shopping, Bramalea City Centre is also open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

What’s Closed

All Brampton Library branches (Chinguacousy in the Civic Centre, Cyril Clark, Four Corners, Gore Meadows, Mount Pleasant Village, Springdale and South Fletcher’s) will be closed Monday, August 6.

City hall will be closed and a number of city services will be unavailable or operate under reduced service levels.

Some of the city’s services will continue to operate as usual, including Fire and Emergency Services and By-Law Enforcement.

Regional services and offices will also be closed Monday including, Access Peel, Assessment: Peel Access to Housing and Children’s Services, Brampton breastfeeding clinics, Children’s Services Operations, Community Recycling Centres, dental services at Peel Public Health clinics, Employment Resource Centres, Healthy Sexuality Clinics, Human Services reception, Learn.Play.Care. Child Care Centres, Ontario Works in Peel, Peel Living, Public Works reception, the Meadowvale Peel Public Health Clinic and Rent Supplement.

If you’re taking transit

In addition, banks and regional services like Ontario Works, employment services, and waste collection, the LCBO, Beer Store and most grocery stores will also be closed.

Brampton Transit will operate as normal most of the weekend, but on a different schedule on Monday, August 6. All transit stores will be closed on Monday as well.

  • Friday, August 3: Regular Weekday Service
  • Saturday, August 4: Regular Saturday Service
  • Sunday, August 5: Regular Sunday Service
  • Monday, August 6: Sunday/Holiday Service

GO Transit will operate on a Saturday schedule.

Other things to note

Waste collection, including curbside pickup of garbage and recycling, will not happen on Civic Holiday but will be bumped to one day later. Since it’s a provincial holiday, federal services will be available, Canada Post outlets will be open and mail drop off will still occur.

When it comes to fireworks, there are no City of Brampton-hosted fireworks on the Civic Holiday. Unfortunately for you fans of fireworks, Civic Holiday is not one of the four days during the year when personal fireworks are allowed in the City of Brampton under the new fireworks usage rules, so you’ll have to abstain from using them.
