To support Canada’s economic recovery, protect and create jobs, and keep dollars in the pockets of Canadians who need it now more than ever, we’re asking governments across the country to freeze beer tax increases.
Sign up to show you support freezing beer tax increases. We’ll keep in touch and let you know how you can help.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted many sectors and businesses, including the beer industry. Here’s how.
Loss of on-premise sales at restaurants, bars and tap rooms, which typically accounts for 25% of total beer sales in Canada.
Cancellation of sports, festivals, concerts and events.
Demand for beer cans increased and production costs rose as a result of market changes.
U.S. aluminum tariffs impact brewers who rely on manufacturers on both sides of the border to source cans, particularly the popular 473ml tall can that is only made in the U.S.
Production of hand sanitizer.
Empty return fundraisers.
Support for bar and restaurant partners.
Keeping beer flowing and safely in the hands of beer drinkers (curbside pickup, delivery).
Adjusting seating and layouts within patios and taprooms to create a safe, welcoming environment.
