(Feb. 12/13) It’s official! Caterers in British Columbia can now obtain a liquor licence to fully meet the food and beverage needs of their clients. Click here (PDF) for more information.
Last May, the province introduced legislation that allows commercial caterers, restaurants and bars to provide offsite catering liquor service. This victory follows years of lobbying by our commercial catering members with CRFA’s assistance. CRFA met with B.C. Deputy Premier and Minister Responsible for Liquor and Gaming Rich Coleman last week to discuss the licence announcement, as well as other beverage alcohol issues.

The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association and its catering members who have been advocating for these changes are pleased the government listened. This is a win-win liquor modernization initiative that reduces red tape for government while enabling the hospitality industry to better serve their offsite customers responsibly.
