On March 18, 2020, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) announced that it would be extending by three months the term of all the active liquor, gaming and cannabis licences, authorizations and registrations it has issued. On April 14, 2020, the AGCO extended this measure by an additional three months, for a total of six months.
To continue to provide support to the people and businesses regulated by the AGCO who are facing difficult circumstances during the COVID-19 pandemic, the AGCO will be further extending the term of all active liquor, gaming and cannabis licences, registrations and authorizations by an additional three months, for a total of nine months in all.
Once again, licensees and registrants do not need to do anything. Existing licences, authorizations and registrations will simply remain in effect for the extended period at no additional cost. You will receive a renewal reminder notification 60 days before your new, extended term expires.
As of July 25, you will be able to log into your iAGCO account and print your revised licence, registration or authorization, which will reflect the new extended expiry date.
If you do not currently have an iAGCO account, you will need to create one and use an AGCO-provided access code to link your active licence, registration or authorization to it. To obtain your access code please contact AGCO Customer Service at 416-326-8700 or toll free 1-800-522-2876 during regular business hours.
Stay well and healthy.
