Information for Mobile Food Vendors

One way to encourage people to meet and the community to thrive is to further activate the city’s public spaces with expanded access to food outlets. The Mobile Food Vendors - Trading in Public Places (POL 062) policy has been developed to guide mobile food vendor activity. It seeks to be well balanced by facilitating mobile food vendor operations while protecting public health, safe-guarding local business proprietor interests and maintaining community welfare in public spaces.
