This is an exciting time to join the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (formerly the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch) as we continue to transform the provincial approach to regulating liquor and implement the provincial licensing of non-medical cannabis private retail stores following the October 17th, 2018 federal legalization of non-medical cannabis.
With staff in Victoria, Surrey, Vancouver and regional offices across the province, the Branch works to protect public safety and to minimize the health and social harms of alcohol and non-medical cannabis. The Branch issues licences in B.C. for making and selling liquor and for non-medical cannabis private retail sales. It currently regulates 10,000+ licensees, including pubs, bars, lounges, stadiums, nightclubs and restaurants, liquor stores, breweries, distilleries, wineries, and UBrews/UVins. In addition, the Branch regulates almost 30,000 Special Event Permit events, for events like concerts and weddings each year.
The Branch is comprised of three divisions: Program and Strategic Services Division (Communications and Stakeholder Relations, Policy and Legislation, and Management Services), Licensing Division (Licensing and Local Government Liaison, and Business Transformation) and the Compliance and Enforcement Division (both regional and HQ).
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Director Communications & Stakeholder Relations provides leadership and direction in developing and managing the branch’s communications planning and internal and external stakeholder communications and engagement strategies and initiatives.
