Since the initial announcement, interest has been expressed in 28 communities/RMs. These permits will be distributed over auctions to be held in early 2020 until all of the communities where interest has been expressed are auctioned. In cases where there is more than one permit available in a community/RM, the auction will determine the applicant for one permit only. Future auctions will be held for additional available permits.
Additional liquor store permits will be allocated when someone expresses interest in a community where there is an available retail store permit. To find out if a community/RM has an available retail liquor permit, please send your name, phone number, email address and community to LL@slga.gov.sk.ca.
Information about future auctions will be made public in a number of ways – including a provincial news release to all media outlets, ads in community newspapers, information on slga.com, notification to those who have expressed interest in a permit and notification to community officials.
