Alberta has a "provincial day of mourning" on Monday, September 19 to mark the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, but it's not going to be a stat holiday in the province.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced there would be a holiday for federal workers across Canada but it was down to the individual provinces to decide whether the day would be a stat holiday.

The Alberta Government said workplaces, schools, offices and retailers are encouraged to observe a moment of silence at 10 a.m. on Monday.

It also said all employers are encouraged to allow employees to "mark the occasion of Her late Majesty’s funeral."

Schools are also planned to stay open to observe the day.

However, if you were wondering how the day of mourning will impact you, here's what is open and closed on Monday.
