Canada: The Ontario Wine Market

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)   |   CA2021-0039

Canada is the top export market for U.S. wines by value, and Ontario’s provincial liquor board is among the largest purchasers of beverage alcohol on the planet. Imported wines are primarily sold through provincially owned and operated retail outlets, although recent regulatory changes have authorized 157 private grocery retail locations to distribute wine and beer. From 2021, bars and restaurants in Ontario may sell alcoholic beverages with food takeout and delivery, further expanding consumer access to imported wines.
