Welcome to

The Alliance of Beverage Licensees

BC’s Alliance of Beverage Licensees (ABLE BC) is the leading voice of British Columbia’s private liquor and cannabis retail industries.

Our membership includes pubs, bars, nightclubs, private liquor stores, hotel liquor licenses, and various agents, industry suppliers, and benefit providers.

Following the federal legalization of recreational cannabis in October 2018, our membership also includes licensed non-medical cannabis private retail stores in British Columbia.

On behalf of our over 1,000 members we advocate for thriving and sustainable private liquor and cannabis industries.
