The 2021 Civic holiday will be Ontario’s first long weekend under the province’s Step 3 of reopening. This will be the province’s first three-day weekend when indoor activities and local attractions will not be off-limits. After months of isolation and restrictions, many Ontarians will be able to enjoy a weekend with fewer limitations.
Since the province is in Step 3, gyms, cinemas, theatres, museums and other venues are open for indoor service. Indoor dining is allowed as well as nightclubs with limited capacity. This holiday weekend could give businesses an indication of how busy they will be in the future. The CN Tower’s 360 Restaurant opened on Thursday as a surge of reservations started flooding in, according to Robert Ng director of attractions.
The executive director of the Waterfront BIA, Tim Kocur says the waterfront and other outdoor spaces are anticipating more visits. Kocur added, “There’s quite a lot happening now with more restrictions lifted.” Hassaan Basit, president and CEO of Conservation Halton said since January, parks have seen roughly 850,000 people, a 30 to 40 per cent increase from 2020.
