Online Webinar for CafeTO Questions

An online webinar for local operators is planned for Tuesday, March 2 at 9:30 a.m.

The webinar will review the program requirements and help answer any questions.
We will send out registration information for this at a later date.

Some of these improvements for this year are: 

  •  A clearer registration process, that starts sooner, as well as an updated guidebook that includes enhancements to accessibility requirements.
  • A more efficient CaféTO installation process, to begin helping approved businesses as soon as possible once winter is over and public health regulations permit outdoor dining.
  • Commitment to ensure more restaurants in Scarborough, Etobicoke and North York are ready to take advantage of opportunities for quick expansion of outdoor dining.
  • Development of comprehensive and safe traffic management plans that will help ensure the curb lane cafés are as safe as possible for people dining, employees and people using the road.
  • Allowing some owners/operators to build temporary platforms for curb lane café areas, where applicable.
  • Ensuring there is accessible furniture for public parklet areas.
