Smart Choices

Alcohol is no ordinary commodity, and LCBO staff is committed to helping Ontarians make responsible choices about its consumption. Our goal is to help partners develop programs and raise public awareness of initiatives that foster a culture of moderation.

Low-Risk Drinking Guidelines

Did you know that Canada has a set of low-risk drinking guidelines? Developed with the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse (CCSA) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), these guidelines provide Canadians who choose to drink with key information to help them make informed drinking choices that support a culture of moderation. Pick up a copy next time you’re at an LCBO store, or download the guidelines from the CCSA site.


Alcohol-Free Pregnancy

The Best Start Resource Centre has long been a valued LCBO partner because of its work to support awareness of why an alcohol-free pregnancy is the best way to give your baby the best start. If you’re pregnant or planning a pregnancy, you can get helpful, expert-developed information on a wide array of topics — nutrition, physical activity, morning sickness and much more — at the Best Start Resource Centre site.
