Temporary Outdoor Physical Extension (Temporary Patio)

Effective on January 1, 2023 as directed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO):

  • NEW! Most liquor sales licensees and manufacturers that hold a by-the-glass endorsement who want to operate a temporary patio will need municipal approval
  • NEW! Upon obtaining an approval from a municipality, you are required to then notify the AGCO by making a submission on the iAGCO portal before selling or serving liquor on your temporary patio (see Notifying the AGCO of an Approved Temporary Patio)
  • NEW! Temporary patios may only operate for a maximum of eight months per calendar year
  • The City's current Temporary On-street Patio Policy allows business owners to establish a patio area on a roadway. Business owners should be aware that this could be limited to certain roads, and that they need to advise their neighbouring tenants before proceeding.
