Less than 2 weeks away from Canada’s biggest birthday bash EVER. Planning on hitting a patio in Ottawa? Well…
And those patios could possibly be open till 4 AM! City Council voted in favour of a motion specific to a by-law limitation affecting patios in the city’s Right-Of-Away zone. This motion allows the City, and affected ward councillor, to consider a request for patios in the zone to stay open until 4am during Canada Day weekend. Individual establishments will have to apply for approval.
However, this doesn’t mean they will be serving alcohol till 4. That’s a separate permit they would have to apply for. Mayor Watson says some, particularly in the market, already have.
More details below!
