On December 22, 2020 the Manitoba government announced it is providing $5 million in financial relief to dine-in restaurants that have been affected financially by the province moving to Critical (red) on the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System and resulting public health orders.
Based on a recommendation from business leadership and stakeholders, the $5-million Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program was delivered by the Manitoba Chambers of Commerce in partnership with the Manitoba Restaurant and Foodservices Association and Economic Development Winnipeg.
The program is initially designed to provide a rebate to dine-in restaurants across Manitoba that have had to significantly shift operations to a delivery model as a result of moving to Critical (red) and subsequent public health orders. The rebate will help offset additional costs of this operations shift related to food delivery services, whether a restaurant provides its own delivery service or uses a third-party delivery company.
Based upon a demonstrated continued need within the industry, an additional $2-million in funding has been provided now to extend the program for at least one more month of funding for Dine-in restaurants and to help relief reach caterers and rural restaurants which did not qualify for the first phase of the program due to lack of delivery model options.
This program is still currently only available to dine-in restaurants now doing delivery, caterers, and rural restaurants without access to delivery. Quick service restaurants are not eligible at this time.
