Important news on registering alcohol containers

As of February 22, 2024, AGLC will no longer register alcohol containers with the BCMB on behalf of the liquor agencies. We are currently experiencing system issues that may potentially delay the alcohol container registration process. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and are actively working to resolve the issue. Learn More

Convert or extend your licence

Convert your licence

As a liquor manufacturer, if you have a Class A licence, you might want to change from one Class A licence to another. For example, you might have a Class A Manufacturer Taproom licence and want to change it to a Class A Minors Allowed licence.

To convert your licence, contact your AGLC Inspector at In most cases there are no forms or fees required.

Extend your licence

If you hold a Class A or Class D (Manufacturer Off-Sales) licence, you might need to extend your current licences to let you do certain things. Common extensions are:

  • Class D Manufacturer Off-Sales licence holders: An extension that lets you sell your products at approved farmers' markets or approved artisan markets; you'll need a separate extension for each market you sell at
  • Class A or B licence holders: a Patio Extension that lets you serve alcohol on an approved patio at your facility
  • Class A or B licence holders: a Caterer's Extension that lets you provide food and liquor at events away from your licensed premises
  • Class A or B licence holders: an extension that expands your area for serving alcohol, such as other rooms within the same complex

To request an extension, email inspections.mailbox@aglc.caRequests should be placed at least four weeks in advance. Your Inspector will notify you via email if your request was approved or denied.
