Of course all emergency services and retailers of food, pet food and supplies will be allowed to remain open.
And, according to the Bluewater Wood Alliance, their MPP has indicated that the business in #19 and #28 - see below - will also be allowed to continue, but only if they can maintain social distancing and sanitizing practices to maintain a safe workplace.

19 - Businesses that extract, manufacture, process and distribute goods, products, equipment and materials, including businesses that manufacture inputs to other manufacturers (e.g. primary metal/ steel, blow molding, component manufacturers, chemicals, etc. that feed the end-product manufacturer);

28 - Construction work and services, including demolition services, in the industrial, commercial, institutional and residential sectors;

Here is the list for essential services and activities in Quebec.

This is a developing story, more to come.
