Province is expanding measures to support restaurants, bars and tourism operations hard hit by pandemic
The Ministry of the Attorney General says a temporary wholesale pricing program will mean liquor licence holders can purchase beer, wine and spirits at reduced cost.
The program is set to begin at the end of July and will be in place until March 31, 2021, when it will be reviewed.
Restaurants, bars and pubs currently pay for liquor purchases at full retail price, which is the wholesale price, plus a retail markup set by the ministry’s liquor distribution branch.
