Minimum Pricing / SR Pricing

Social Reference Pricing

Spirit, wine and beer products sold by retailers for off-site consumption are subject to minimum social reference pricing. Social Reference Pricing (SRP) indexes minimum retail prices according to product category, size and alcohol content.

Minimum Pricing

Liquor-permitted businesses that serve alcohol on table must charge at least $2.25 per ounce of spirits and the same amount for bottled or canned beer (assuming 12 ounces per container). The minimum price for draught beer is $0.16 per ounce, and for wine the minimum price is $0.35 per ounce. All these prices include the Liquor Consumption Tax and GST.
