Catering Licenses and Endorsements

Liquor Control and Licensing Branch has introduced a new liquor licence for catering businesses. This new licence enables caterers to provide a full range of food and beverage services to their clients.

In addition, existing food-primary and liquor-primary licensees may apply for a catering endorsement in order for them to also provide food and beverage service at events held at offsite locations.

Both the catering licence and the endorsement applications are available here

If you hold a Catering licence or endorsement, you will be able to submit notice of all catered events to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch using the OneStop Business Registry site.
