Hospitality Sector Working Group

In July 2023, we created the Hospitality Working Group. The group consists of representatives from across the hospitality sector and City staff. Its goals are to:

  • Think about ways to further improve licensing timelines
  • Review the City year-round patio program
  • Evaluate how to simplify regulations for lounges at breweries and distilleries
  • Explore ways to streamline approvals for fire occupancy permits
  • Find opportunities to streamline timelines for provincial and municipal liquor-licensing
