Liquor Control Act                                                                                  The details of the NSLC’s role and legislated responsibilities are contained in the Liquor Control Act (LCA) of Nova Scotia. This Act mandates the organizations responsibilities to our shareholder - the people of Nova Scotia. The most fundamental element of the NSLC’s role is the responsibility for the receipt, distribution and control of all beverage alcohol available throughout Nova Scotia. In order to ensure the safe and responsible purchasing of alcohol, any products sold through our stores, Agency Stores, Private Wine and Specialty Stores (PWSS), Licensees, and private importations must be received through the NSLC. Through this mandate, the Government ensures that the product is available only to Nova Scotians of legal drinking age. The legislation also describes four key responsibilities of the Corporation, specifically:

  • Attainment of acceptable levels of customer service
  • Promotion of social objectives regarding responsible drinking
  • Promotion of economic objectives regarding the beverage alcohol industry in Nova Scotia and attainment of suitable financial revenue for the Government of Nova Scotia.
