Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program 

The Manitoba Chambers of Commerce in partnership with the Manitoba Restaurant and Foodservices Association has opened the online application process for the Dine-in Restaurant Relief Program, a new COVID-19 emergency relief fund for businesses announced on December 22, 2020.

This program is funded by a $5-million grant from the Province of Manitoba and is intended to provide financial relief to dine-in restaurant operators who have been affected financially by Critical (red) level restrictions of the #RestartMB Pandemic Response System.

The program is designed to provide a rebate to traditionally dine-in restaurants across Manitoba that have shifted to a food delivery model as a result of COVID-19 prevention orders prohibiting dining room operation. The rebate will help offset costs related to delivery services, whether a restaurant provides its own delivery service or uses a third-party delivery company.
