Currently, retail holiday closures are based on the Retail Business Holidays Act (RBHA), provincial legislation that was established to provide common closings on the following statutory holidays: New Year’s Day, Family Day, Good Friday, Easter Sunday, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.
The Province now permits municipalities to establish their own approach to retail holiday openings. Peel Region is considering important changes to the way that it will regulate shopping activities on these holidays.
Peel staff is consulting with the public and industry stakeholders, such as businesses and retail workers, to work toward a 'made-in-Peel' approach to regulate retail business openings.
