Do you have a sidewalk café or marketing display outside your business in Toronto? A new and harmonized bylaw for sidewalk cafes and marketing displays comes into effect on September 1, 2019. The new bylaw will modernize regulations, create consistent guidelines and standardize the application process. Existing conditions attached to permits issued before September 1 will continue to apply, but there will be updated fees and regulations that current permit holders need to comply with. Learn more.
