City welcomes patio applications

Wednesday, April 27, 2022

The City welcomes applications for sidewalk patios in the downtown area. As downtown streets and sidewalks have been cleared and milder temperatures are anticipated, patios may begin operating May 1. 
Municipal approval is only required for patios on City property. Commercial patios on private property do not require municipal approval provided they are not in a yard that abuts a residential zone. 
Lead-time and unexpected issues can delay an application so proponents are asked to apply early to take full advantage of the patio season. 
Conformity with municipal regulations will not exempt restaurants and bars from also complying with Provincial and other relevant agency regulations. As well, Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) requirements under the Liquor Licence Act must be met.
