The distribution of alcoholic drinks in Canada is largely under the monopoly of provincial governments, except Alberta which is wholly private.
The alcoholic drinks market across Canada, in 2013, was approximately $22 billion. The provinces of Ontario and Quebec represent close to 60% of the entire Canadian Market.
The Canadian wine market is as large as $7 billion with the highest annual growth rate of 5% among all segments.
The LCBO, the alcoholic drinks distribution monopoly of the Ontario Government, is the largest retailer in the world with sales revenue of $7.5 billion, of which wine sales account for $2.3 billion.
The LCBO purchases through multiple tenders and accepts offers only from the agents of international producers.
