There are two (2) steps to becoming an import agent.
- Complete the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch (LCRB) import agent license package. Should you have any questions for the LCRB regarding the required licensing, please contact them online or by phone.
- Once you have your agent license number from the LCRB, download, review and complete the LDB New Agent Application Package.
Please Note: You must have a supplier that has already authorized you to represent them.
Once you are granted an agent licence from the LCRB, the LDB process time can vary but usually takes 2 weeks.
There are no application fees to submit a new agents package to the LDB. However, there is fee to obtain an agents license from the LCRB.
No. A letter of authorization states only one agent can represent a supplier (or a specific line of products).
Samples are generally not required for product registration, but a sample may be requested by our Vendor Relations Team reviewing your registration.
