Ontario allows bars and restaurants to permanently sell alcohol via takeout and delivery

The change was made among several relief measures

The province of Ontario has announced that it will allow restaurants to permanently sell alcohol with food takeout and delivery in an attempt to support the industry through the pandemic.

The change was made on December 9th alongside other relief measures like nixing licensing requirements for third-party delivery services and reducing the price of spirits that are consumed on-site.

Additionally, licensed operators may now serve alcohol on docker boats, alcoholic drinks can be included in delivered food boxes and meal kits, and alcohol distillers may deliver their own products to sell spirits and wine at farmers’ markets.
