Thank you for visiting the Special Event Permits Online website


In response to the latest PHO Order, and effective immediately, the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) will be cancel and refund all Special Event Permits (SEPs) that have been issued for events between November 19th, 2020 – December 7th, 2020. The LCRB may extend this date if required.

No new SEPs will be issued in accordance with the Order until further notice.

Considering public health concerns regarding the spread of the COVID-19, the LCRB is exercising its discretion to cancel these permits as they could pose a threat to public safety under the authority of s. 50(1)(e) of the Liquor Control and Licensing Act as they could pose a threat to public safety. This will help protect the public and ensure the promotion of physical distancing as ordered by the Provincial Health Officer.

If you have any questions, please call the LCRB’s Special Event Permit Support Team, at 1-855-999-7656. Please have your SEP number available.

This page will continue to be updated as we receive further direction from B.C.’s Provincial Health Officer.
