We are asking for feedback from all downtown Guelph business owners to help further refine seasonal patio program recommendations for 2021 and beyond.

We heard from the public and the patio stakeholder group in 2020 and now we need downtown businesses to help us as we:

  • define downtown areas that will allow on-street patios
  • establish daily operating hours for on-street patios
  • seasonal downtown road closure boundaries for extended on-street patios


A recommended seasonal program will go to Council for consideration in March 2021.


Please note that this consultation is limited to one participant per downtown Guelph business.

Use both the survey and the mapping activity below to share your thoughts with us before 9 p.m. on Monday January 18, 2021


This round of consultation has concluded. Watch for updates about the patio program proposal to council.
