Additional Resources:

We are pleased to announce that significant progress has been made on the construction drawings, which can be used by Parkdale Village BIA member businesses participating in the CaféTO program. These drawings are specifically tailored for those looking to build their risers and patios as part of their applications to the City. To make the process easier for all participants, the Toronto Association of Business Improvement Area (TABIA) has now uploaded the sample drawings and the associated step-by-step process on their website.  As part of the commitment to supporting local businesses in Toronto, TABIA has also curated a list of top potential vendors for CaféTO program participants. These vendors specialize in providing high-quality services and products to enhance your outdoor space, ensuring a welcoming and enjoyable experience for your customers. You can access all these resources here at no additional cost: CafeTO Resources
