What's open and what's closed this St. Jean holiday

Shopping malls, banks, liquor stores, and most major retail stores will be closed on this St. Jean Baptiste holiday, though the big outdoor markets such as the Atwater and Jean-Talon markets, drug store chains and some grocery stores will remain open.

Government offices at all levels will be closed, though the city of Montreal's Ecocentres will operate as normal, as will the city's 3-1-1 information hotline.

There will be no mail pickup or delivery today.

Some of the city's major attractions, like the Biodome, the Insectarium, the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium and the Botanical Garden will be open today, as will the Pointe-a-Calliere Museum of Archaeology and History.

Garbage and recycling pickup will be normal in the city, with the exception of a few boroughs — Plateau Mont-Royal (no garbage or recycling pickup), Lasalle (no recycling pickup), Rosemont-Petite Patrie (No recycling pickup or pickup of bulky items), and Villeray-St-Michel-Park-Extension (no garbage or recycling pickup).

Buses and metros throughout the Montreal area will operate on weekend schedules. The AMT's Mont St-Hiliare and Candiac lines will not operate Tuesday, while the Vaudreuil-Hudson, Deux-Montagnes and St-Jerome lines will operate on Sunday schedules.

And parking meters, as they usually do, will still take your money.
