“You’re gorgeous, baby, you’re sophisticated, you live well…Vancouver is Manhattan with mountains. It’s a liquid city, a tomorrow city, equal parts India, China, England, France and the Pacific Northwest. It’s the cool North American sibling.” - The New York Times


A Different Kind of Patio Season

The first day of summer is fast approaching, calling for longer nights, cold drinks, and of course patios!

To accommodate Covid-19 social distancing rules, the City of Vancouver's temporary expedited patio permit program will support businesses and customers alike in the transition back into regular activities. Applications between June 1 to October 31, 2020 will allow for free temporary patio permits to increase dining space and enjoyment of facilities. 

Numerous applications on both public and private properties are awaiting approval, but here are some approved locations to enjoy safe gatherings and the celebration of summer.
