The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is responsible for administering the Liquor Licence Act (LLA) and specific sections of the Liquor Control Act (LCA), which together with the regulations made under them establish the licensing and regulatory regime for most aspects relating to the sale and service of alcohol in Ontario.
Among its responsibilities in the alcohol sector, the AGCO licenses and regulates establishments that sell or serve alcohol to the public for on-site consumption. This includes establishments such as bars, restaurants, lounges and night clubs, although there are no restrictions in the LLA on the type of business that can apply for a liquor sales licence.
This portal is intended for staff who work in liquor licensed establishments.
Use the resources below to help you obtain your sale/server training or to better understand your obligations under the Liquor Licence Act, in particular with respect to the responsible sale and service of alcohol.
