Not Admitted Free: Interprovincial trade barriers in alcohol

Published on June 29, 2018 by Canadian Constitution Foundation, this report takes a critical look at Canada’s interprovincial barriers to trade in alcohol.

Comparing and ranking the provinces, the report considers factors such as: price relative to other goods, openness to interprovincial trade, range of products available, whether provincial regulations favour local products, freedom to transport alcohol into the province, public control of sales, and marketing restrictions.

The report also makes the legal and economic case for free trade within Canada for a general audience and summarizes existing studies showing the high cost of interprovincial trade barriers generally, and also specifically with alcohol.
