Service Update: Shipments of imports and out of province products

As you may be aware, the union representing workers at Canada’s largest rail operators, CN and CPKC voted in favour of a strike. The earliest potential job action could occur would be May 22, 2024.

The BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) recognizes this news may be concerning to our customers and agents.

We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with our agents and suppliers to determine if there are any potential delays on imports and out of province products.  

Any updates and important notices will be posted on the LDB Wholesale Operations website at

We value our industry partnerships and will continue to work together to serve our mutual customers.
