The City of Winnipeg has announced that it will waive the registration fees for its temporary patios this summer.

The MRFA is pleased that the City heeded our calls for this measure that will help restaurants safely expand their capacity.

From the City’s website:

Fees will be waived for the registration of Temporary Winter Patios.

On March 25, 2021, City Council passed a motion to waive fees for the registration of a Temporary Summer Patio. If you were previously charged a registration fee for a Temporary Summer Patio, you will be contacted to initiate a refund. All new registrations will have fees waived.
