The Ford government announced Sunday that it has extended the hours that alcohol sales can be made throughout Ontario.

Finance Minister Vic Fedeli announced on Twitter the extended hours have taken effect.

“Starting today, LCBO stores (including agency stores), The Beer Store, authorized grocery stores and off-site winery retail stores can sell alcohol between 9 a.m and 11 p.m seven days a week,” Fedeli said.

The government previously announced its plans to extend its sale hours in its fall economic statement last month.

The extended hours do not necessarily mean that all stores will be open from 9 a.m to 11 p.m, but they are now legally permitted to be open during those hours.
