Ideas to modernize liquor regulations
With input from a number of Alberta liquor-licensed members, CRFA outlined ideas to modernize liquor regulations in a follow-up letter to Minister Lukaszuk. Our recommendations include:

  • provide greater flexibility in liquor service hours;
  • allow pre-mixed liquor products;
  • simplify the minimum price formula for multi-ounce cocktails;
  • allow licensee liquor warehousing; and
  • allow licensees to purchase products by the bottle, instead of by the case.
