Distribute your products

Sell in Alberta

Before you can sell or serve your products, you and your staff must be certified with ProServe Liquor Staff Training.

There are many ways that you can distribute your products:

For details about what to consider when choosing a distribution strategy, see How to sell

For details about how liquor is distributed in Alberta, see Warehouse and distribution

Selling online

You can ship your products in Alberta with:

  • a common carrier such as UPS or FedEx
  • a delivery service that has a Class D delivery licence

Regardless, you cannot sell liquor to a minor. It is your responsibility to ensure that the person receiving liquor products from an online sale is at least 18 years old.

Selling at markets

If you have a Class D licence with a market extension, you can sell your products at the following sites:

  • Approved Farmers' markets, as approved by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry
  • Approved Artisan markets, as approved by AGLC

A list of approved artisan markets can be found below.

Class D market extension

To sell at markets, you must get an extension on your Class D licence. This extension is granted for each specific market for the duration of that market.

To ask for this extension, email a list of the approved markets you would like to sell at to inspections.mailbox@aglc.ca. It can take at least four weeks to approve your request.

Artisan markets

Below is a current list of artisan markets that are approved by AGLC.

If you want to sell at an artisan market that isn't listed below, email inspections.mailbox@aglc.ca with the market details. AGLC will determine if the market meets the criteria to be approved, as listed in Section 3.9.3 of the Liquor Licensee Handbook.

Sell outside of Alberta

You can export your liquor products outside of Alberta and even outside of Canada. Before you do so, you must contact the jurisdiction where you want to sell your product and follow their policies.

If you export your liquor products outside of Alberta, you must record this in your monthly inventory report to AGLC. When preparing your report, you include all liquor products you shipped outside of Alberta under the “Sent out of province” heading.
