Retail Liquor Permits

Government has announced its policy regarding the future allocation of additional permits for retail liquor stores in the province.

Liquor retail permits may be available in certain communities depending on local population and the number of existing retailers. If a permit is available in a community and interest is expressed, the opportunity will be advertised and an online auction will be held. The successful bidder will need to meet all requirements associated with obtaining a retail liquor store permit.
