Grants for renovations and improvements to commercial buildings to support Edmonton small business development.

On December 8, 2020, the Government of Alberta announced new mandatory public health measures for businesses to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

Effective December 13, 2020, all restaurants, pubs, bars, lounges and cafes must close to in-person service. This includes all temporary outdoor patios and sidewalk cafes. Take out, curbside pickup and delivery services are allowed.

Outdoor retail expansions may continue provided they follow the Province’s requirement to reduce customer capacity to 15% of fire code occupancy.

Small businesses play a vital role in contributing to a city’s vibrancy. The City encourages commercial property owners and business tenants to invest in exterior and interior renovations to create better first impressions and to improve appearance and functionality. 

To help businesses make these improvements, the City provides matching reimbursement grants to cover a portion of eligible improvement costs.
