Criminal Record Check Relating to the Liquor Licence Application Process

Anyone who applies for a liquor licence in British Columbia must obtain a criminal record check. A criminal record check shows whether an applicant has been charged with and/or convicted of a criminal offence.  If the applicant has a criminal record, we will look carefully at the circumstances of the individual case before deciding whether or not to continue with the liquor licence application process.

A criminal record check can be obtained from your local RCMP detachment or police department.
