Note explicative (en anglais seulement)

Clause 1 amends the Liquor Control Act to add a definition of “ferment-on-premises facility” and amend the definition of “license” to include licenses to operate a ferment-on-premises facility.


Clause 2 provides the Minister of Service Nova Scotia with the general supervision and management over the licensing of premises for the operation of a ferment-on-premises facility.


Clause 3 governs licensing in respect of ferment-on-premises facilities and prohibits a person from operating a ferment-on-premises facility without a license to do so.


Clause 4 creates a new class of licenses under the Act, the ferment-on-premises license.


Clause 5 provides for the non-application, in respect of an application for a ferment-on-premises license, of provisions of the Act requiring that the initial designation of a licensing area in a municipal district be subject to certain advertising and notification requirements and voting by residents or requiring that public consultation take place before the granting of certain kinds of licenses.


Clause 6 adds regulation-making powers for the purpose of regulating ferment-on-premises facilities and establishing an administrative-penalty regime under the Act.


Clause 7 prohibits a licensee of a ferment-on-premises facility or an employee or agent of the licensee from allowing a person under the age of nineteen to use the facility to make beer or wine.


Clause 8 removes a provision authorizing the Nova Scotia Liquor Corporation to seek an injunction to enjoin a person from violating the Act or regulations or from continuing a violation.

Clause 9 updates the name of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations and the title of the Minister of Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations.

Clause 10 provides that this Act comes into force on proclamation.
