Regulations that prohibit striptease entertainment as a regular activity in liquor licensed establishments are now in effect.
Striptease entertainment will now be allowed to occur in limited special use facilities – theatres/concert halls, casinos and exhibition facilities. Communities without these types of special use facilities may hold events at an approved venue, under a Special Occasion Permit.
Events can only occur once annually per establishment and must be in support of a charitable/community cause. Full nudity will continue to be prohibited.
“We know in the past that there have been some performances that have served as fundraising events for very worthy causes,” Minister responsible for SLGA Don McMorris said. “In drafting these regulations, we wanted to take a common sense approach that would allow these types of events to continue to occur, but on a very limited basis and not as the main focus of a business.”
Correspondence regarding these changes will be sent to all of the province’s 1,900 commercial liquor permit holders in the coming days.
