What’s open and closed in Toronto on New Year’s Day


It’s officially the first day of 2024, a rare time when much of Toronto is shut down before another busy year officially begins.

Here’s a list of what’s open and closed Monday.

City services

Most city services are closed on New Year’s Day, although emergency services still operate.

All city-run libraries are closed. Recreation centres are closed. 

Many outdoor skating rinks are supervised and maintained Monday. Others aren’t, meaning no one will be clearing away snow, if there is any. The city’s website lists which are staffed.

Garbage drop-off depots are closed Monday.

Grocery, alcohol stores

LCBO and The Beer Store are closed.

Select grocery stores are open on New Year’s Day. Check with your local grocer for their hours. 

Transit

The TTC and Go Transit are running on a reduced Sunday schedule.
