Current version (some information may be out of date):

Updates to the Liquor Control Act:

  • Minors, who were restricted from licensed events unless they were weddings without liquor commission approval, may also attend other family events such as birthdays, anniversaries and reunions. Also community events such as fundraisers, and other family‐oriented entertainment like ceilidhs, will be allowed so long as they are accompanied by a supervising legal guardian.
  • Underage entertainers may perform at licensed venues with the permission of the licensee, rather than requiring liquor commission approval.
  • Minors with a legal guardian having a meal may stay until 2 a.m., rather than 10 p.m.
