Mobile food vending is a great way for people to try out a business idea without making the capital investment of opening a storefront. As a means to encourage and promote the food vending industry in Downtown, the City of Whitehorse and Yukon Government make public sites available for vending during the summer season. Sites are allocated in the spring via a lottery process. There are still some vendor sites available for 2017, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Information for Vendors
In accordance with the City's Lease, Encroachment and Property Use Policy, mobile food vending on public property is permitted only at designated sites. Sites are allocated to vendors each spring via a lottery process. Sites not assigned during the lottery are available over the counter on a first-come, first-served basis. Vendors who are not interested in this process may locate on private property, with the consent of the property owner and with all other applicable approvals, permits and licenses. All vendors must obtain a Development Permit prior to operation.
