n 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 restaurants and licensed manufacturers with tasting rooms (breweries, micro distilleries, etc.) 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 July 6, 2020 unless otherwise extended, if registered with the City. Please continue to check back for updates on operational dates for registered temporary patios.

Please Note: Temporary Patio Requirements are only in effect until July 6, 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need to follow the established City of Winnipeg patio permit process when the temporary patio registration process is no longer in effect. 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.
