In Toronto and East York, businesses can apply for an outdoor marketing display (also called "boulevard marketing") permit to allow them to display their merchandise outside of their business on the sidewalk. The merchandise sold inside and outside must be the same.
The City is now in the process of harmonizing boulevard cafe and marketing bylaws. Learn more.
