Liquor Licensing

The Provincial Liquor Control and Licensing Branch (LCLB) regulates the licensing of all liquor establishments and the retail sale of alcohol in British Columbia. The City of Revelstoke is referred on a number of these applications, including liquor primary applications and other licence endorsements. The City also reviews requests for patio expansions and extensions to hours of operation.
