BCs grassroots campaign to
modernize our liquor regulations.

The Campaign for Culture has been actively pushing for a sensible, modern, and culture-friendly liquor policy in BC since 2012. We are an independent group striving to represent the interests of consumers, as well as British Columbians who value the social and cultural fabric of our province. Having introduced broadly supported ideas, such as Happy Hours and the sale of craft liquor at Farmers Markets, to the provinceʼs conversation around liquor policy, we hope to work with the government and the industry to bring forth changes that will enhance our province.

Vancouver Extends Restaurant Patio Hours

“Patios are a big draw for residents and tourists alike, and help build a lively, vibrant street scape,” says Mayor Gregor Robertson. “With patio season upon us, I know many Vancouverites will enjoy the extra hour to socialize outdoors later into the night.”

This year, longer patio hours will run from April to October. Small and large patios can remain open until midnight (extended from 11:00 p.m.).
