Downtown Winnipeg BIZ can assist with temporary outdoor restaurant and retail space
The City of Winnipeg is allowing businesses to set up temporary patios. Information about the temporary patio guidelines, along with the online registration form is available at winnipeg.ca. Fees will be waived for registration.
The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ recognizes the opportunity for restauranteurs and retailers to have outdoor space to assist with serving your customers while maintaining physical distance. Our team can work with businesses to simplify the process to implement an outdoor retail and restaurant space downtown. We will help our members get up and running in a reasonably fast amount of time with limited financial and infrastructural resources. At this time following Phase 1 provincial guidelines, the temporary patios are only permitted until May 31, but our team can help you navigate the patio process through Phase 2 and onward. If you would like more information, please contact Tracey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Downtown Winnipeg BIZ is working with the city to make temporary patio set-ups as safe and efficient as possible. Our goal is to have them permitted through the summer and pandemic recovery period.
