Temporary Patio Program

Building on the successes of the Temporary Patio Program, the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake is excited to extend the Temporary Patio Program for 2023, supporting local restaurants, bars, and other food and drink establishments in their efforts to provide safe outdoor dining experiences. 

Niagara-on-the-Lake's Temporary Patio Permit Program is currently in effect for the 2023 patio season, ending February 28, 2024.

  • There are no application fees associated with this process.
  • Any necessary maintenance completed by the Town as a result of the patio may be charged to the applicant.
  • All temporary patios must comply with guidelines provided by the Town, the Province, and the AGCO regarding patio size, occupancy limits, and health regulations. 

Application Process & Requirements

Through the application process, Town Staff is committed to making every effort to enhance customer service, improve processes and support economic recovery while minimizing impact to the heritage district and ensuring all health and safety requirements are met. 

Thank you and we wish patio owners and operators a successful, safe, and enjoyable season ahead!
