Apply for or make permanent changes to an existing liquor primary licence

The following instructions apply to:

  • New applications
  • Permanent changes to existing Liquor Primary licences

Meet with a licence coordinator to discuss your application before you submit your application.

Application process

Application fees can be found in Schedule B of the License By-law 4450.

Public consultation

We encourage you to liaise with area residents and business operators before submitting your formal application to let them know of a possible application to eliminate the public's surprise once we conduct the official neighbourhood public consultation.

The Chief Licence Inspector determines the level of public consultation. Processing fees are based on the degree of public consultation required for each application.
