The town is seeking public input on its business licensing bylaws, including those governing food trucks. 

Staff are due to present their review of the bylaws that set out rules for business licenses for food vendors, transient traders, hawkers, and peddlers at a council committee meeting on March 1. Following a public input and review period, staff plan to bring recommendations to council on March 22. 

Between now and March 16, the town is asking the public for feedback from residents and the business community regarding the current rules around business licensing, in particular food trucks and refreshment carts on public and private property and transient traders, which includes pop-up sales and liquidation events.

On the town's public feedback online portal, Engage Collingwood, there's an option to use a map to indicate where you would like to see food trucks in town. On March 2, the town is planning on also posting a survey on the site.

For more information and to provide your input, please visit or contact Town of Collingwood, Clerks Office at (please type "Business Licence By-law Review” in the subject line of the email) or 705-445-1030.
