Temporary Outdoor Restaurant Patios Extended to December 2021
Today, City Council extended Mississauga’s temporary patio program and amended the Temporary Use By-law to allow restaurants, bars and other food and drink establishments to operate their temporary outdoor patios until December 31, 2021. As part of the extension, these businesses can also install temporary tents/covered areas and heating devices as part of their patios, in accordance with provincial and City regulations, to ensure they can continue to serve patrons. This step was taken to enable restaurants to continue operating in winter while adhering to all COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
