Kugluktuk to return to restricted liquor system Sept. 4
Hamlet voted for new liquor rules in May 16 plebiscite
The Government of Nunavut is reminding people that new liquor restrictions will soon come into effect in Kugluktuk.
On May 16, hamlet residents held a community plebiscite and voted to move from an unrestricted to a restricted liquor system.
As of Sept. 4, the new limit per person for each two-week period for importing or purchasing liquor will be:
- 1.775 liters of spirits (1 x 60-ounce bottle);
- 17.04 litres of beer (48 x 355ml cans); or
- 3.75 litres of wine (5 x 750ml bottles)
Finance Department spokesperson Weichien Chan said purchasing alcohol from the Nunavut Liquor and Cannabis Commission does not require an import permit, but purchasing alcohol from outside Nunavut does require a permit, which can be purchased from the NULC office or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
