The City of Ottawa is continuing to provide assistance to support the re-opening of local businesses. City Council has continued the waiving of fees for all patio and café permits for the 2021 summer ROW patio season.
City council has also extended the Temporary Zoning By-law Amendment for patios on private property to January 1, 2022. If you are interested in establishing a temporary private patio, please follow the steps below. If you already have established a temporary private patio through this program and wish to extend it up to January 1, 2022, you do not have to register again with the City.
