In Ontario, there is a mandatory government order to close non-essential businesses due to COVID-19.

(in French only) Bonjour, ici Nancy Beauchamp, directrice nationale de la région du Montréal métropolitain du STTP. J'espère que vous allez bien, et que vos proches aussi vont bien, malgré la période de stress intense que nous traversons. Les travailleurs et travailleuses des postes ont toujours joué un rôle clé dans la livraison des produits de première nécessité et la prestation de services indispensables. Dans la situation actuelle, notre travail est encore plus important, mais il est aussi de plus en plus stressant pour tous ceux qui sont au front.
