Nova Scotia will observe the national holiday on Monday.

Provincial government offices, public schools and regulated child care will be closed. Healthcare services, appointments and procedures will remain operational across the province.

Businesses will have the choice, as they do on other occasions, to remain open.

“Nova Scotia joins the Government of Canada and other provinces recognizing September 19 as a day to honour and pay tribute to the life and legacy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II,” said Premier Tim Houston.

A service is set to take place at the Cathedral Church of All Saints in Halifax that afternoon at 2 o’clock.

Lieutenant Governor Arthur J. LeBlanc will deliver a eulogy and Premier Tim Houston will give a tribute to the late Queen.

Earlier on Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau declared a national holiday and added he would be working with the provinces and territories to observe the day.
