In response to the Province of Manitoba’s Restoring Safe Services plan released on April 29, 2020, the City of Winnipeg is offering an expedited process to allow for businesses to establish temporary patio spaces. The temporary patios must comply with the general safety requirements outlined in the Temporary Patio Registration Form, and will be allowed to operate without permit until May 31, 2020 if registered with the City.

Please Note: Temporary Patio Requirements are only in effect until May 31, 2020, unless otherwise extended by the City as a result of the Province’s plan. You will need to follow the established City of Winnipeg patio permit process beginning June 1, 2020, unless otherwise extended. To prepare for a smooth transition of the operation of your patio from being registered to being permitted, please submit your permit application as soon as possible to allow time for the required processing and approvals to be completed.
