In an effort to facilitate the reopening of local businesses and in aid of Coquitlam’s economic and social recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, the City has reviewed its regulations and created a new process for processing applications for food and beverage business owners wishing to expand their seating capacity, or for retailers seeking to add sales area.

The extra space is intended to allow patrons more space to maintain physical distancing. Examples could include:

  • Restaurant or table seating;
  • Merchant displays (e.g. clothing racks, outdoor tables, etc.);
  • Pick-up or drop-off kiosk or customer queuing; or
  • Checkout areas.
