Liquor Licence Act Obligations

In Ontario, it’s illegal to consume alcohol before the age of 19. It’s also illegal for anyone to supply alcohol to minors.

When individuals selling or serving alcohol have reasonable grounds to believe someone is buying for a minor, the Liquor Licence Act gives them the right and responsibility to refuse the sale. Under the Act, anyone convicted of supplying alcohol to a minor faces a fine of up to $200,000 and up to one year in jail. Anyone who holds parties for minors where alcohol is served may also be subject to criminal charges and civil liability.
