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 licences, authorizations and registrations it has issued. On April 14, 2020 and again on July 17, 2020, the AGCO extended this measure by an additional three months each time.
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 and gaming licences, registrations and authorizations by an additional three months, for a total of twelve months in all.
Once again, affected licensees and registrants do not need to do anything, as their existing licences, authorizations and registrations will simply remain in effect for the extended period at no additional cost. Renewal reminder notifications will be sent 60 days before the new extended term expires.
As of Oct 16, licensees and registrants will be able to log into their iAGCO account and print a revised licence, registration or authorization showing 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 (Mon-Fri 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time).
Stay well and healthy.
