FIRST PHASE OF UPDATED LIQUOR REGULATIONS TAKE EFFECT

Thirty-nine of the province’s 77 updated liquor regulations announced last fall are now in effect as a result of policy changes made by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA).

“Our government is pleased to be able to improve our liquor regulatory system by eliminating red tape and creating new opportunities for business,” Minister responsible for SLGA Donna Harpauer said.  “The necessary policy changes have been made by SLGA to allow for the first phase of changes to be implemented.”

Among the changes now in effect:

  • Movie theatres can now apply for a permit to sell and serve alcohol in areas of the theatre where minors are not allowed.
  • Hotels, resorts and lodges can offer all-inclusive pricing that includes alcohol.
  • U-brew/U-vin businesses now have greater flexibility in how they can operate and the services that they can provide. 
  • A number of other changes including allowing golf operators to determine the acceptable number of alcohol carts or kiosks on a golf course and allowing sports stadiums to determine the number of drinks that can be sold to patrons.

In November 2012, SLGA announced 77 changes to the province’s liquor regulations.  The first phase of changes are the result of policy changes made internally by SLGA.  The remaining changes require legislative and regulatory amendments which are expected to be passed during the current legislative session.  Once passed, the changes are expected to be implemented in summer.
