Do I have to serve food in my licensed establishment?

Food service requirements differ by licence category.

Dining room licensees must offer meal service to patrons when liquor service is available and must have on-site kitchen facilities to prepare such meals. Customers may consumer liquor without meal service as long as half of the seating is available for those who wish to order meals in the dining room.

Dining room/lounge licensees must offer meal service to patrons in the dining room when liquor service is available and must have on-site kitchen facilities to prepare such meals. Customers in the dining room may consumer liquor without meal service as long as half of the seating is available for those who wish to order meals in the dining room. Liquor service may be with or without meal service in the lounge, but food must always be available.

Beverage rooms, customer/member service and entertainment facility licensees must ensure there is a variety of food available to their customers when they are open for business.
