Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation

Other forms of name:
Nova Scotia Liquor Commission

The modern Liquor Control Act was enacted in 1930 and the Nova Scotia Liquor Commission set up to implement government control of the distribution and marketing of alcoholic beverages. In 1946 the commission's responsibility for vendor licensing was transferred to the Tavern License Committee (later Liquor Licence Board). In 2001 the commission was superseded by the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation, a crown corporation designed to maximize revenue from sales by expanding and diversifying retail operations.

Notes: Authority record based on Statutes of Nova Scotia, 1930 c. 2, 1946 c. 33, 2001 c. 4 (Part VI).
