City of Toronto 2024 CaféTO Program Improvements

City of Toronto is making improvements to the CaféTO patio program for 2024, pending approval from the City Council. These improvements include fast-tracking approvals for returning restaurants, simplifying the process for new ones, and aiming to open most patios by Victoria Day. Other changes aim to streamline processes, enhance communication with restaurants, and possibly make more private patios permanent. The program also supports local musicians through the Amplified Music on Patios initiative and it’s part of broader efforts to assist the local restaurant industry in Toronto.
