Labour Day means a shortened work week for many, the start of a new school year for others, and the celebration of the labour movement. 

But it also means a lot of closures in the city.  Here’s a look at what’s open and closed today in Sudbury.


Tourist attractions and some dining and entertainment services are open, hoping to draw in the long weekend crowds. These include:

  • Science North.
  • Dynamic Earth.
  • Silver City Sudbury Cinemas.
  • Some restaurants.
  • Greater Sudbury’s public transportation services are running today, but operating on a Sunday schedule.


  • Municipal services (garbage and recycling will be unaffected).
  • Other government offices.
  • Retail stores.
  • Canada Post outlets.
  • Banks.
  • Beer Stores.
  • LCBO.
  • Libraries.
  • Community centres.
