Jul 30 2020, 11:33 pm

British Columbia is definitely a place worth celebrating, and with the combination of summer and BC day this Monday, August 3, now’s the time to get out and explore what this province really has to offer.

However, we also know that a day off can mean an extra chance to run errands, visit attractions, and pick up supplies for whatever you have planned.

But because it’s a statutory holiday, this of course means not all places will be open.

As per usual, government offices including Canada Post and city hall will be closed, along with banks and libraries.

So don’t get stuck needing something, or having to change plans at the last minute.  Instead, check out our handy guide to what’s open and what’s not in Vancouver, this BC Day.

As a reminder, please remember to adhere to all physical distancing guidelines and public safety protocols if you plan to visit any of these locations.

Here’s what’s open on BC Day this year.
