Monday is Louis Riel Day, and while there will be plenty going on while most Manitobans take a well-deserved day off, not everything will be open.

Louis Riel Day — observed on the third Monday of each February — is classified by the province as a general holiday, also called a statutory holiday.

Here's a look at what's open and what's closed on Monday in Winnipeg.
