“Our government is pleased to make these changes today and remains committed to reviewing regulations on an ongoing basis.”
More than 70 changes have been announced, including lengthening permit durations to three years, allowing restaurants to operate off-sales, allowing restaurants to offer Bring Your Own Wine (BYOW) to customers and increasing flexibility for golf courses and sports stadiums.
