This bulletin is to advise all registered liquor agencies that a comprehensive review of the Liquor Agency Handbook was recently undertaken in support of government’s red tape reduction initiative and to ease regulatory requirements for liquor agencies. As a result of this review, a number of policy amendments were approved. Highlights of the amendments include:
eliminating duplication with the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act and Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Regulation in 2.1, 2.5 and 3.22;
eliminating references to federal legislation in 3.1, 3.12, 3.15 and 3.22;
