Did you know that whether you live in an unrestricted or restricted community, you need a liquor import permit to bring in more than three litres of spirits, nine litres of wine, or 26 litres of beer (72 x 355 millilitre containers) to Nunavut?
Import permits are available from your region’s liquor permit office:
|Iqaluit Beer and Wine Store
|Cambridge Bay – Department of Finance (Helen Maksagak Centre)
|Rankin Inlet – Siniktarvik Building
|Hamlet of Kugluktuk
Without an import permit, liquor stores in other provinces will not process your order. Import permits should be purchased in person, but if you need to order your permit by fax, you will need to include a valid photo ID. Accepted payment methods to purchase a permit are cash, cheque, credit card and debit card.
You can buy alcohol within Nunavut without an import permit through the Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission, by phone at 867-645-8475, by fax at 867-645-3327, or by email at NLCLiquororders@gov.nu.ca.
