Restaurants and bars in Ontario are temporarily allowed to sell alcohol with food takeout and delivery orders as part of new measures meant to help businesses and residents weather the COVID-19 pandemic. This new rule applies to bars and restaurants that already have a liquor licence, and it will remain in place through the end of the year.

Beer, wine and liquor can also be sold for takeout or delivery through a third party, such as a food delivery service or app, as long as it is acting on behalf of a licensed establishment, but the holder of the liquor licence is responsible for making sure no alcohol is sold to anyone under 19 OR who is already intoxicated.

The licence holder or staff carrying out the delivery, including third-party agents, must have completed Smart Serve training, however, those who do not yet have that certification can start delivering now as long as they complete the training by April 25th.

There is no limit on the quantity of alcohol that can be purchased for takeout or delivery, but the drinks must be sold in sealed and unopened containers, and sales must take place between 9 a.m. and 11 p.m.

Grocery stores and liquor manufacturer retail stores are also temporarily allowed to sell alcohol as early as 7 a.m. to accommodate early shopping programs for vulnerable people.
