Product details

According to the authors of this new publication, the “driving factors for the liquor laws of Canada are two-fold”: the first is the need to exert control over the manufacture, sale and consumption of liquor in the interests of public safety, and the second is raising revenue – through, for instance, taxes – from that manufacture, sale and consumption to subsidize government services. Liquor laws of Canada examines both of these aspects of the provincial and federal legislation that regulates the Canadian liquor industry.

 An authoritative text

Written by  former and current practitioners from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario with many years experience, Liquor laws of Canada offers a comprehensive look at the legislative and regulatory regime governing the liquor industry in Canada. The only Canadian text to cover the laws regarding liquor from coast to coast, this authoritative volume discusses all aspects of the industry in every province and territory, including:

  • Regulation
  • Manufacturing
  • Procurement
  • Distribution
  • Retail sales
  • Intellectual property, including trade-marks
  • Advertising
  • Packaging and labelling
  • Consumption
  • Licensing
  • Host liability 

 The authors also provide a valuable analysis of the constitutional and economic contexts of Canadian liquor laws, giving readers a useful guide for understanding and interpreting the overall legislative framework.

 Liquor laws of Canada offers practical guidance that would be particularly helpful for:

  • Federal and provincial government lawyers at all levels, across the country
  • In-house counsel at organizations that deal in any way with the liquor, beer or wine industries
  • Business lawyers representing anyone involved in the buying, selling, manufacture, distribution or marketing of liquor of any kind, including beer, wine and spirits
