B.C. will now allow private liquor retailers to sell products to those who have special event permits, where previously only government liquor stores were permitted to do so. The private retailers who may now do so include:

  • B.C. wineries, breweries and distilleries with on-site stores
  • Licensee retail stores (private liquor stores)
  • Wine stores (excluding sacramental wine stores) and special wine stores
  • Rural licensee retail stores
