Dear ABLE BC Members and Industry Colleagues, 

Despite our previous note (sent on March 20) about liquor primaries being allowed to reopen, BC’s Public Health Officer has just ordered that all dine-in service in BC be cancelled

LPs may re-open to offer take-away or delivery food services only. LPs that focus on liquor service (such as nightclubs) are prohibited from opening at this time.

Please disregard our update sent earlier this afternoon indicating otherwise. 

ABLE BC sincerely apologizes for this confusion. Things are happening very quickly within government and sometimes parties are not connecting with each other as quickly or effectively as usual.

We always strive to offer the most accurate and up-to-date information, particularly in this time of crisis. We are sorry we missed the mark on our update today.

If you have any other questions or concerns about this, please contact ABLE BC: or
