The answer is given by the Transit Code in Article 4 “Road marking with signs”, who states that P-8 means road closed to all vehicles in both directions.

In practice, if a driver comes across this sign, it is forbidden to enter the street you are on, regardless of the vehicle you are driving. Pedestrians are of course excluded, while in case someone is a cyclist, they must get off the bike and keep pushing it (they are considered a pedestrian).
