The Alliance of Beverage Licensees (ABLE BC) is the advocacy organization representing British Columbia’s private liquor industry. We are the largest and most effective liquor industry association in BC, with membership including private liquor retailers, pubs, bars, nightclubs, hotel liquor licensees, as well as various agents, suppliers, and benefit providers.

Our Strategy


We serve as a positive and professional advocate to protect and expand business opportunities for the private liquor industry.
