Municipal Alcohol Policy: A practical resource for successfully managing drinking in recreational settings


Addiction Research Foundation, Canada (now Centre for Addiction and Mental Health CAMH)

Each section of the Guide is designed to address a municipality's particular needs, whether you want to:

  • develop a Municipal Alcohol Policy (MAP) for the first time to establish local rules and regulations so you can legally operate events needing Special Occasion Permits
  • review and revise an existing MAP where an annual or periodic review of the MAP is indicated
  • consolidate two or more MAPs because of a political merger or for those wishing to partner with other municipalities to develop a common MAP
