About the program
The City is opening up applications to allow for the seasonal conversion of outdoor space to patio-use between April 1 and October 31 in accordance with the 2021-2023 Seasonal Patio Guidelines. All seasonal patios must be approved before being installed and comply with the public health and safety directions, including any COVID-19 related public health requirements and all applicable Provincial Orders.
It is the ongoing responsibility of Patio operators to monitor changing legal requirements and updates to these Seasonal Patio Guidelines, particularly but not limited to as they pertain to public health regulations, orders, and guidance from the Provincial Government, the Government of Canada and/or the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Public Health Unit.
