Temporary Patio Program

Review Latest PHO Order
Check the latest PHO order for restaurants, pubs, breweries, cafes and coffee shops.

The City has temporarily relaxed our patio rules so businesses can easily create more outdoor patio space during the COVID-19 pandemic. On September 14, 2020 Council unanimously approved a motion to extend the Temporary Patio Program for the duration of COVID-19 to support local businesses. There are no permit fees for this temporary permit.

Who can apply? Neighbourhood pubs, breweries, restaurants, specialty food services and retail shops with a valid business licence issued by the City. Want to expand your patio or extend your current permit? 

Apply for New Temporary Patio Permit

New! Due to the March 29th Public Health Order and all indoor dining closed, if you would like to explore options please apply.

Our Temporary Patio Program helps businesses create or expand outdoor seating areas for customers at no cost.

Extend Current Temporary Patio Permit

Local businesses that have an existing Temporary Patio Permit can apply to extend the permit for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic at no cost.
