If you don’t have a government-issued photo ID, the LCBO Bring Your ID (BYID) Card might be a great choice for you. Tamper-resistant, it is endorsed by the provincial government and proves that a customer is of legal drinking age. To apply for a BYID card, you must:
• be 19-35 years old
• supply a passport-size colour photo
• include photocopies of documents proving date of birth and name
• pay a $30 fee
A guarantor must sign the back of the photo and all documentation, and fill out a section of the application. Random checks help ensure applications and guarantors are valid.
