In June 2019, Parliament passed amendments to the Importation of Intoxicating Liquor Act that remove all federal restrictions on the interprovincial shipping of liquor. The provinces are still entitled to enact constitutional laws that govern liquor within the province, but they cannot directly regulate interprovincial shipping of liquor, as that is a federal matter. They are, however, entitled to govern the supply of liquor within the province, which may have incidental effects on interprovincial shipping. Several provinces have now responded to this change in the federal liquor-shipping framework.
