Whether you're a non-drinker, enjoy the occasional glass of wine, or are a regular at your neighbourhood pub, the City wants to hear your opinions for the first comprehensive review of its liquor policies. It’s launching an online questionnaire to gather your views on how liquor is served, produced, and sold in Vancouver. Your feedback will help shape the Vancouver Liquor Strategy which will inform new or revised approaches to liquor. The survey will be open until May 15, 2016.
Types of liquor policies being reviewed
The City is reviewing municipal liquor regulations so that enjoying beer, wine, and spirits is well-balanced with health, safety, and community fit. The Province of BC recently made changes to provincial liquor policies. The City is now looking at its policies, too, such as:
Where and when liquor is sold, made, or served
Size and type of venues that serve liquor
Rules for liquor on patios
Supporting no- or low-liquor entertainment options
