Canadian liquor laws

Canada has complex liquor laws which have developed since Prohibition in the 1920s. Throughout Canada’s provinces and territories, there are 13 different organizations responsible for regulating the sale and distribution of alcohol. Within most provinces there are provincially owned stores who have a monopoly over spirit, or liquor, sales. Whilst in some provinces it is possible to buy a limited selection of spirits, wine or beer in privately owned shops or grocery stores.
