Special Event Licence (SEL) Bus Tour Consumption Requirements

Liquor Bulletin 

August 17, 2020

Effective immediately amendments to AGLC’s Special Event Licence (SEL) policies and Guidelines will come into effect. The amendments provide more flexibility with respect to the liquor consumption time permitted aboard buses licensed for special events. With these changes, liquor service will no longer be required to cease 30 minutes prior to arrival.

The SEL policies may be accessed on AGLC’s website at

We encourage interested applicants for SEL events to read the relevant policy for full licensing requirements.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding SEL policies please contact AGLC’s Regulatory Services Division at: or toll-free at 1-800-272-8876, extension 8846.
