A provincial liquor license application is on the top of the list of “must haves” for Canadian private liquor stores and wine stores, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, liquor manufacturer, hotels, caterers, casinos, resorts and more. For these businesses, a liquor license serves a core business function; without the license, they couldn’t open their doors for customers. Applying for a liquor license can be confusing, frustrating and time consuming, which is why most businesses hire a consultant to manage their liquor license in Canada.
Not only does each type of liquor service businesses require a specific type of liquor license, but each province also has jurisdiction over licensing businesses in their province. The waters are muddied further because the name of the license and the application steps differ from province to province. Confused? You aren’t alone. It’s difficult enough for a layperson to understand liquor licensing in their own back yard, let alone have familiarity with liquor licensing in Canada’s other provinces and territories. We understand that business owners and start-up partners may not reside in the province in which they wish to open a business.
This is why doing it yourself isn’t advisable as it doesn’t typically make good business sense. If you want your head to spin, take a quick look at the article we wrote “How to Get a Liquor License in Canada” which summarizes all available liquor licenses in every province and territory. That article is a mere summary. Imagine the amount of research it would take to become an expert.
