In Nova Scotia if you plan to serve, sell, or produce beverage alcohol, or use it as an ingredient in a product for sale or public use, you’ll need to obtain a liquor license.
If you would like to obtain a liquor license for a special event such as a wedding, fundraiser or other community event, those licenses are issued by Alcohol, Gaming, Fuel and Tobacco. You can reach their licensing office at (902) 424-6160. There’s also more information on their website.
The application forms and detailed requirements for all other liquor licenses are available on our Permits page.
Permit applications are also available at the NSLC’s Head Office & Distribution Centre located at 93 Chain Lake Drive, Bayers Lake Industrial Park, Halifax, Nova Scotia, or by calling our Permits & Regulatory Affairs Analyst at (902) 450-5918 during business hours - Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
