Ontario restaurants can now temporarily sell alcohol in takeout and delivery orders
Mar 26 2020
The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has announced that restaurants can now temporarily sell alcohol in takeout and delivery orders.
This action has been done to support restaurants and bars that have been impacted due to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.
For those that don’t know, Ontario has now mandatorily closed non-essential businesses but restaurants can still serve food as long as it’s through takeout or delivery.
This new measure now allows licenced restaurants to begin selling alcohol immediately between 9 A.M. to 11 P.M.
This also applies to orders through third-party services such as Uber Eats or SkipTheDishes as long as the service is acting on behalf of the licensee.
Those who purchase alcohol will still have to ensure that they are of legal drinking age and not intoxicated when picking up the order.
