Application Process - Rural Liquor Vendors

In order to become a liquor retailer, applicants must successfully complete the application process and enter into a Liquor Vendor Agreement with MBLL. Applicants must also be issued an applicable retail licence from the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Authority of Manitoba (LGCA). Individual application processing times will vary depending on (among other things) MBLL processing time/volume/resources, LGCA processing time/volume/resources, and the individual processing/response time of the Applicant.

Circumstances that may prolong an application timeline include but are not limited to the following:

  • Complexity of the ownership structure
  • Incomplete application submissions requiring additional and/or multiple discussions with the Applicant
  • Applicant delays in responding to either MBLL or LGCA when requesting clarifications or further information
  • Applicant delays in providing MBLL with a signed Liquor Vendor Agreement and supporting documents
  • The location/site is not ready/does not meet initial MBLL requirements

Applicants will work with both MBLL and LGCA throughout their application process.
All aspects of all applications are subject to ongoing reviews by MBLL and LGCA.
