Family Day holiday service hours at the Region of Peel
Brampton, ON (February 9, 2021) – Region of Peel offices and non-emergency services will be closed for the Family Day holiday on Monday, Feb. 15, 2021.
As the Region of Peel continues to support efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, certain regional facilities and services remain affected until further notice. Peel’s case counts remain high and our test positivity is the highest in Ontario. We must stop the spread of the virus by staying at home as much as possible. For family and friends who live outside your home, take lots of photos and arrange virtual calls to stay connected and maintain physical distance. Only socialize with your immediate household and essential supports.
