A liquor Plebiscite will be held in Gjoa Haven

Voting Day will take place on October 23, 2023, from 9:00 am – 7:00 pm at the Gideon Memorial Hall.

Advance Vote will take place on October 16, 2023, from 12:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Hamlet Office.

You are eligible to vote at this plebiscite if you:

  • are a Canadian Citizen
  • will be at least 19 years old by October 23, 2023
  •  will have been a resident of Gjoa Haven for 1 year on October 23, 2023

If 60% or more of the votes cast under the question are “YES”:

The current prohibited liquor system in the Hamlet of Gjoa Haven and the surrounding area will be replaced by the restricted quantities system.

The current prohibited liquor system will end. The restricted quantities system will start only after the laws are changed.

If more than 40% of the votes cast under the question are “NO”:

The current prohibition system that prohibits the purchase, sale, transport, and possession of liquor in the Hamlet of Gjoa Haven and the surrounding area will continue.

Plebiscite Question

Are you in favour of replacing the current prohibited liquor system in Gjoa Haven with a restricted quantities system?

A restricted quantities system would limit the amount of liquor that a person can purchase in or import into the community every 14 days to:

  • 24 cans of 355 ml or less of beer or other liquor with no more than 8% alcohol by volume (example ciders or coolers)
  • 4 litres of wine (example 5 bottles of 750ml)

Voting YES means, you want the law to change.

Voting NO means, you want the law to stay the same.
