Read the updated CaféTO guidebook to better understand this year’s program.
For eating establishments that would like to install or expand a sidewalk or curb lane café (on the road) in 2021, please make sure to have the following pieces of information available:
*As the city is the owner of the property to which the new or expanded café is located, this insurance is for liability only, a risk you have already been assessed and insured for by your broker/insurance company.
Please complete the registration form, even if you have previously received permission under CaféTO.
All applicants for CaféTO will be required to submit a complete Certificate of Insurance. Comprehensive Liability Coverage of at least $1,000,000 is required. A blank copy of the CaféTO Certificate of Insurance is available for download.
Effective 12:01 a.m. June 11: when subject to no other regulations, the majority of CaféTO patios facing main streets may serve alcohol until 2 a.m. and must close by 2:45 a.m. However, where alternative hours of operation have been imposed by Community Council, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) or Provincial regulations, these will take precedence. Patios facing local side streets must close by 11 p.m. so last call for alcohol service will be 10:15 p.m.
