Open or closed on Labor Day?
The municipal offices and the vast majority of the shops will be closed for Labor Day. Here is some information to avoid being caught off guard.
L ost stores will be closed on September 2 on the occasion of Labor Day. All the offices of the Cities of Quebec and Lévis will also be closed.
Only small food establishments – less than 375 square meters – will be able to open.
Restaurants, petrol stations, bookstores, antique shops and florists will be able to open their doors to the public, just like pharmacies, on the condition that no more than four people operate the commercial part, excluding those assigned solely to pharmacist’s pharmacy.
Essential services such as police, fire protection and water treatment will be maintained day and night. For any emergency requiring the intervention of police, firefighters or paramedics, the public can dial 9-1-1 at any time. With respect to water and sewer systems, street lighting or roadway conditions, citizens will be able to call 3-1-1 and choose option 1.
In Lévis, for any situation requiring a rapid intervention such as an aqueduct break, call 418 839-2002.
Waste, recyclables and ecocentres
The collection of waste and recyclable materials will be maintained according to the usual schedule in all boroughs of the City of Quebec. Ecocentres will also maintain their regular schedule, which can be consulted in the city.quebec.qc.ca/ecocentres.
In Lévis, all the collections will be done according to the usual schedule. The Lévis ecocentre is open from 8 am to 8 pm, while the Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon center will follow the weekend schedule from 9 am to 4 pm.
On Monday, street parking will be free in front of the toll booths throughout Quebec City, except in the rue de la Maréchaussée, where it is paid at all times.
Streets in Battlefields Park, including De Bernières Street and Taché Avenue, are not under the jurisdiction of the City. Parking meters are therefore paid.
Parking lots equipped with toll booths will remain charged, including those located at the Esplanade Park, in front of the Palais station, in the Saint-Sacrement district between Chemin Sainte-Foy and Rue Marie-Rollet, as well as in the the area of Maguire Avenue.
From Monday at 6:00 am until Tuesday at 6:00 am, parking will be allowed longer than the normally authorized limit, whether or not there is a resident parking permit. All other parking regulations will apply.
Capital Transportation Network
On Monday, buses will operate according to the Sunday schedule. Children from 6 to 12 years old can travel for free thanks to the Family Privilege.
The counters of the service of the municipal court of Quebec will be closed Monday. It will however be possible to pay online a statement of offense or a payment agreement, by credit card to the city.quebec.qc.ca/services.
On Monday, the following libraries will open according to their usual schedule: Jesuit College, Étienne-Parent, Félix-Leclerc, Monique-Corriveau, Paul-Aimé-Paiement and Romain-Langlois. Schedules can be consulted at bibliothequedequebec.qc.ca/libraries. Other libraries and those in Lévis will be closed.
Sports and community centers
In Lévis, the indoor pools (Pierre-Létourneau and Aquaréna Léo-Paul-Bédard) and the rental trays for sports activities in the schools will be closed. Arenas, community centers, municipal park cabins and outdoor sports fields (soccer, ball and tennis fields) will be open.

All SAQ Express stores will be opened as well as the Grand Marché in Quebec City. The opening hours of each branch during the Labor Day holiday can be viewed on the Company’s website.
The SQDC branches in Quebec City and Lévis will be closed.
Local information matters to me and I want to participate in the future of my life.
