TORONTO, ON – The Toronto Star reports that temporary legislation implemented earlier this year to allow bars and restaurants in Ontario to sell alcohol for take-out and delivery is set to become permanent.
Originally introduced in March as part of a wave of changes to help businesses in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the law was to be in effect until December 31st, but will be made as part of the Main Street Recovery Act that Associate Minister of Small Business Prabmeet Sarkaria will be introducing to parliament later today.
As with the temporary version of the legislation, licensees will be allowed to sell sealed containers of beer, wine, and spirits with food orders from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM daily, and all persons delivering alcohol will be required to complete Ontario’s Smart Serve training.
