VICTORIA, B.C. – Restaurants and pubs can continue to sell and deliver alcohol with any meals until October 31, 2020.

Individuals who deliver the liquor products are required to be certified with Serving It Right and must verify the age of the person who ordered the alcohol.

The Province is also extending temporary authorizations that allow for increased hours of retail liquor service in the Province.

The original authorization for the extended liquor retail hours was set to expire July 15, 2020. It will now remain in place until August 31, 2020.

Liquor retailers, such as wine stores or private liquor stores, will continue to be allowed to temporarily operate between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. daily until the end of August 2020, if they choose to do so.
