Toronto to permit restaurants and bars to expand patios

The move will allow establishments to increase their capacity while maintaining physical distance between patrons.

Jun 05, 2020 - EightSix Staff

In an effort to support the city's restaurants once they are permitted to open for dine-in service, the city of Toronto is working with the province to allow food and beverage establishments to expand their dining rooms onto sidewalks and curb lanes.

Dubbed "CaféTO," Toronto Mayor John Tory said the plan will be part of Ontario's second phase of reopening and easing restrictions.

The typical fees associated with these expansion permits will be waived, providing additional relief for business owners.

The city is also encouraging its 8000 restaurants and bars to prepare to open as soon as the emergency orders are lifted so there is no delay in starting their recovery.
