For Food providers, you must apply to Car Free Day Vancouver, receive approval, then pay your fee before Car Free Day will submit your Temporary Food Services Application form to Vancouver Coastal Health on your behalf. Temporary food tents/stations and restaurants extending their permit to cook and/or store food outside need to submit this form.
Food trucks and carts need to upload a copy of their annual Coastal Health permit.
Everyone else, including restaurants looking to only extend their patio (ie waiters bring food to patrons from kitchen), should upload a description of their plans.
If you plan on selling liquor in a patio extension, you must first apply to Car Free Day Vancouver, receive approval, then pay your fee before the City and Province will approve your liquor extension permits. This link will let you know what you need to get together before you can apply for your liquor extension permit:
