COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update
April 9, 2020: The start dates for the single-use item by-laws for straws, utensils, cups, and shopping bags remain unchanged.
However, we're suspending education, outreach, and enforcement for these by-laws until further notice.
The City's priority is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuring essential services continue uninterrupted.
Effective Apr 22, 2020, single-use utensils can only be provided upon customer request (this is a by-request by-law).
