Social responsibility requirements

Selling alcohol is a public trust the government takes very seriously. The following retail requirements apply to authorized grocers:

  • The sale of wine, beer and cider adheres to standard hours, which are: Monday to Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Limitations to alcohol by volume - maximum of 7.1 per cent for beer and cider, and 18 per cent for wine, beer and cider continue to be sold in a six-pack or less or up to 750 mL per container
  • Wine can be sold in maximum four-litre containers
  • Staff selling alcohol must be a minimum of 18 years of age and be trained on Ontario's standards for social responsibility, including making sure customers under the age of 19 and intoxicated individuals do not purchase alcohol
  • Grocers will also be restricted to selling wines with a retail price of $10.95 (per 750 mL bottle) or higher 

 The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) will oversee these and other regulations.
