The LCBO is an Ontario Crown Corporation, a monopoly established 84 years ago to sell liquor, wine and beer to the people of Ontario. LCBO stores are generally the only stores allowed to sell hard liquor in Ontario. Currently, the LCBO is one of the world's largest single purchasers of beverage alcohol products. The LCBO is by far the largest wine retailer in the province. Licensed bars and restaurants may resell alcoholic beverages, but they must be consumed on the establishment's premises. The bars and restaurants themselves must buy their products from the LCBO, The Beer Store, or directly from Ontario wineries and breweries. There is no retail competition permitted in alcoholic beverages in Ontario on the same scale as all other consumer products. The Ontario Libertarian Party would change this situation, selling off the LCBO and opening up the entire industry to competitive enterprise.
