Highlights of Proposed Food Truck Licencing Process

Current Situation
Food trucks and food trailers are currently permitted to operate either on private property (in zones that permit Restaurant) or in select City parks with a Park Licence Use Agreement. They are not permitted to operate on City streets.

The Opportunity
Food trucks present an opportunity to enliven public spaces, diversify dining experiences and food options available in the City, and enhance Nanaimo’s food culture.

The City aims to establish a Food Truck Licence to:
– Increase the available locations for food trucks by establishing on-street locations
– Streamline the process so that only one permit is needed to operate in any location type
– Provide flexibility to location options so vendors have a greater opportunity for success

The Approach
Who: Food trucks & food trailers (not food carts)
What: Food Truck Licence – valid up to 1 year
When: Year Round
Where: Specified on-street, City park, and City parking lot locations.
