Dine-In Program Expands

Dine-In Program Expands

WINNIPEG - The Pallister government is kicking in an extra $2 million to expand the Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program which is run by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce and the Manitoba Restaurant and Foodservices Association.

It's gives a rebate to dine-in restaurants that shifted to a delivery model due to public health orders brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Under this expansion, restaurants in rural Manitoba and catering businesses that didn't do delivery can now apply for a financial rebate based on their decline in revenue.

Since the program launched in January, over 500 applications have been approved totalling about $4 million, mostly to restaurants in Winnipeg.
