Grants & Financial Support

CaféTO Property Improvement Program (50% up to $7,500.00 available for your CaféTO installation)

The CaféTO Property Improvement Program is available to owners and tenants of commercial and industrial properties in Toronto to improve the appearance and/or function of exterior spaces associated with the property. This program is funded by the Government of Canada through the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.

Funding Available

Grants cover one-half of the costs of eligible property or site improvements up to a maximum amount of $5,000 (based on a minimum of $10,000 of improvements). Funding can include patio improvements on private property and spaces on public property for which a valid permit has been issued.

Additional grant funding of up to $2,500 is available for exterior accessibility improvements such as the installation of temporary platforms level to the sidewalk for a curb lane café (rented, leased, or purchased), accessible ramps for patios on private property, handrails and other exterior accessibility devices which meet Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) design standards.

Architectural, engineering from a certified Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) specialist and Building Code Identification Number (BCIN) registered designer fees may be covered to a maximum of $1,000 per application.

If participating in the program, patios must comply with the City’s Noise Bylaw, at all times. Only cafés on main streets are included – cafés on local roads are not permitted to host amplified live music performances through this program. More information available in the CaféTO staff report.
