A change to prior legislation gives catering companies and existing licensed establishments greater flexibility in serving their clientele.
Catering companies can now obtain a liquor license to better meet the food, beverage and entertainment needs of those employing them. At the same time, already licensed facilities— restaurants, hotels and conference centres—are now able to serve liquor at catered events held at offsite locations. Outdoor weddings, for example, can now have full liquor service from a favourite restaurant, or an out-of-town convention can hire a catering company to provide both food and liquor to attending delegates.
