Liquor Licenses

Businesses in the Municipality of Central Huron that serve alcoholic beverages are required to have a liquor license. If you are planning a special event that involves the sale or consumption of alcohol, you may require a Special Occasion Permit.

Liquor Sales Licenses

If your business or group requires a liquor license, you can obtain one through the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). The AGCO administers the Liquor License Act, which controls the sale and service of alcoholic beverages in the Province of Ontario. Contact the AGCO to access the current regulations and forms.

You may be asked to submit the following forms as part of your application process:

 Municipal Information Form
If the AGCO requires you to submit a Municipal Information Form, please submit the completed form to the Clerk's office at least 30 days prior to when you need to submit the form to the AGCO.
 Agency Letter of Approval

If the AGCO requires you to submit an Agency Letter of Approval, you must submit a copy of this form to each the following:

  1. Central Huron Chief Building Official, 23 Albert Street, PO Box 400, Clinton, Ontario, N0M 1L0.

Please submit all forms to the Municipality at least 30 days prior to when forms are due to the AGCO.

 

You are responsible for collecting all completed and signed forms and submitting the documents to the AGCO.
