Liquor import permits in Cambridge Bay

Iqaluit NULC store

Rankin Inlet NULC office (Siniktarvik Building)

Without an import permit, liquor stores in other provinces will not process your order.

You can buy a liquor import permit if you live in a community that has chosen to be either ‘restricted’ or ‘unrestricted’ under the Liquor Act. If your community is ‘restricted’, you also need the approval of the local Alcohol Education Committee (AEC).  

It is illegal to bring liquor into a community where alcohol is prohibited.

Please note that no liquor orders or import permits will be sold between December 23, 2021 and January 4, 2022.
