Liquor Licence Applications/Objections

Section 4 of the Gaming and Liquor Regulation (GLR) authorizes the Board to establish policies in relation to considering objections received related to the issue of a liquor licence or registration.

The Board has approved the following policies:

The Board will only consider objections to the issue of a licence to the following applicants:

  • All Class A, B, C, D and E liquor licences for new premises;
  • Existing licensed premises applying for additional Class A, B, C, D or E licence(s);
  • Changes to the class of existing liquor licence(s);
  • Relocation of existing licensed premises;
if an objection is received within 21 days from the date that the notice of application was posted on the AGLC website: Proposed Licence Applications PDF

Any objection to the issue of a licence or registration other than those noted above will be considered in accordance with the policies approved by the Board as per the applicable policy handbook including:

Note that the AGLC does not regulate the number of liquor stores, the proximity between such stores, or matters involving increased retail competition in a municipality. Such matters of community image, safety, and property value fall within the jurisdiction of municipalities. These considerations are the responsibility of a municipality during its review of any application for a development permit or business license.

Objections may be forwarded to:

Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission
Director, Inspections Branch
50 Corriveau Avenue
St. Albert, AB T8N 3T5
