Licensee Education Program

The new Licensee Education Program will be delivered in communities all across British Columbia, starting this spring. The education sessions provide licensees with practical knowledge to better navigate B.C.’s liquor laws and successfully operate their establishment.

Topics

The program currently focuses on topics of interest to food primary and liquor primary licensees, including:

  • Updates on recent liquor policy changes
  • Providing safe and responsible service
  • Keeping a licence in good standing
  • Steps to a successful liquor inspection

The program will be expanded in the future to include all other licence types.

Seminars are 2-3 hours and include time for questions with LCLB staff.
