Alcohol at Events
Events with alcohol must adhere to the Policy on the Sale and Service of Alcohol on University Premises, and regulations from the Regie des Alcools, Course et des jeux (RACJ).
An Alcohol Waiver is required for all alcohol-related events.
It must be submitted with your space request (see Request for space), twenty (20) business days prior the the event date.
In accordance with RACJ regulations, a permit to serve or sell alcohol ("Reunion Permit for alcoholic beverages") may be required for your event. To know if you need a Reunion Permit, see Criteria for Alcohol Reunion Permit. This information is also provided in The Waiver.
If you need a Reunion Permit, a completed Reunion Permit application must be received by the RACJ Fifteen (15) days prior to your event. If you are selling alcohol at your event, a completed Questionnaire if you intend to sell alcohol must be included with your application. Your Designated Space Administrator will provide you with a letter addressed to the RACJ which you must include with your application.
As the event organizer, you are responsible for assuming the costs of the Alcohol Reunion permits required at your event.
To assist you in completing the applications, see the following sample documents:
- Sample Application for a Reunion Permit to serve or sell alcohol
- Sample Questionnaire if you intend to sell alcohol
The permit provided by the RACJ must be visible at all times during the event, otherwise the event may be cancelled. You are responsible for adhering to the Procedures for the Sale or Service of Alcohol set out in the Waiver, and the obligations per the Alcohol Reunion Permit.
