Town of Canmore

Council Clips – April 13, 2021

Supporting More Temporary Patios

The new public health directive prohibiting indoor dining is affecting many local restaurants. In what has already been a difficult year for our community, Council has renewed support for opening Main Street to pedestrians as part of a pandemic response to allow residents and visitors to safely support local businesses. In addition, we are temporarily easing bylaw requirements related to outdoor patios throughout the town and expanding financial grants available to local businesses as two more ways we can continue to support community businesses. For details on the pedestrian- and cycle-only Main Street visit
