Liquor & Gaming / Gambling Licenses

In order to operate as a liquor trader (whether selling, manufacturing or distributing liquor), one needs to apply to the Provincial Liquor Board for a liquor licence and these Liquor licences need to be renewed annually.

While the Liquor Act prescribes the form of the licence, an applicant must also furnish the Provincial Liquor Board with written representation to prove that the applicant is a fit and proper person to whom a licence may be granted.

Thus, the application consists of the prescribed form, the written representation, the plans and photos of the premises, well as a description of the premises.

Accordingly the expertise of our Liquor & Gambling law team is invaluable for prospective applicants.
