Liquor policy review

What do you think about liquor in Vancouver?

Liquor plays a role in the life of a city. It’s often a part of social events, live entertainment, and celebrations, but it can also lead to health issues, drinking and driving, and violence. We're reviewing our liquor regulations so that enjoying beer, wine, and spirits is well balanced with safety and community fit. 

The Vancouver liquor strategy

Based on your initial feedback, we've developed actions to improve our liquor policy. Each action supports at least one of the Vancouver Liquor Strategy’s four goals to:

  1. Promote the cultural, social and economic benefits of liquor
  2. Increase responsible liquor choices for consumers
  3. Reduce the negative influence liquor can have on public safety, health, well-being and community fit.
  4. Ensure fair rules, fees and processes for the liquor industry

Providing feedback on these draft actions will help shape the recommendations we bring to Council later this year.
