The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) processes and issues Liquor Licenses. Applications for this licence may be submitted through the online portal, iAGCO. To support your AGCO application, you will need the following documents from the municipal offices:

  • Compliance Letter from Town of LaSalle Building Department
  • Compliance Letter from LaSalle Fire Service
  • Compliance Letter from the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit
  • Municipal Information Form from the Municipal Clerk

In addition to licensing requirements set out by AGCO, the Town of LaSalle also has an Alcohol Risk Management Policy (pdf) which must be adhered to.

The processing fee is $50.00, payable by cheque, cash, or debit. 

Special Occasion Permit

The AGCO gives consent for Special Occasion Permits. This permit is required if you wish to sell alcoholic beverages anywhere other than in a licensed establishment (such as a bar or restaurant) or a private place (such as a private office or home).

Apply to the AGCO for a Special Occasion Permit.

As part of the AGCO application process for outdoor events, applicants must provide written notice to:

  • Town of LaSalle Council Services/Clerks department
  • LaSalle Police Service
  • LaSalle Fire Service
  • Windsor-Essex County Health Unit

Written notice must include event details and a sketch identifying the physical boundaries. If a tent, marquee, pavilion or tiered seating is used, LaSalle Building Department should be notified in writing.

By contacting the Council Services Department, our staff will:

  • Circulate your letter of notification and sketch or plan of the proposed extended licensed area to Police, Fire, and Building for review of applicant compliance
  • Issue a Letter of Non-Objection from the Municipal Clerk to you upon subsequent approval

There is a $25 processing fee for Special Occasion Permits.

Allow the Town 30 days for processing the Special Occasion Permit on top of any AGCO timelines
