Permit authority

Special Occasion Permits allow eligible entities to sell alcohol during fundraising events such as bazaars, picnics, etc.
  • A Special Occasion Permit may only be granted for an event used by the applicant as a means of raising funds for itself.
  • Only the area where sales of alcohol will take place needs to be licensed under the permit.
  • Each Special Occasion Permit may be used for up to 10 consecutive days or six non-consecutive days during a calendar year.

Advance Application

  • An entity that has never been approved for a Special Occasion Permit before must submit an application at least 30 calendar days prior to the event for which the Special Occasion Permit is sought. 
  • If an entity has been granted a Special Permit Occasion in the past, a Special Occasion Permit application must be submitted at least 10 business days in advance of the event.
