About the LCBO


LCBO is an Ontario government enterprise and one of the world’s largest buyers and retailers of beverage alcohol. Through more than 634 retail stores and catalogues, it offers nearly 18,000 products annually to consumers and licensed establishments.

In fiscal 2012-13, LCBO sales topped $4.892 billion and it delivered a $1.7 billion dividend to the Ontario government, not including taxes. This revenue helps pay for health care, education and other important services.

LCBO staff trained in responsible service also challenged more than 7.8 million people in 2012-13 who appeared underage or intoxicated and refused service to more than 322,000, mostly for reasons of age. LCBO has also produced 14 advertising campaigns to prevent drinking and driving.

LCBO’s Quality Assurance also conducts 500,000 tests annually on more than 23,000 different products. This testing helps ensure all products sold by LCBO, winery outlets and beer stores meet federal health regulations and LCBO’s high standards for quality and taste.

Since 2000, LCBO has won more than 200 awards in customer service, innovative retailing, social responsibility, staff training, store design, marketing and corporate communications.
