This article summarizes the provincial laws that apply when a person travels to another province and then brings wine for personal consumption back with them to their home province at the end of the trip. Please note that other articles apply for the following situations:

Bringing Wine Back to Canada After an International Trip

Shipping Wine Between Provinces (i.e. not bringing it back with you)

It should be noted that since there are no 'hard borders' between provinces, there are obvious difficulties with enforcing these rules. It is also odd by global standards to even have a discussion that relates to "importing" wine between provinces. In most places in the world, there are no internal rules governing the transport of wine between regions of the same country.

Nevertheless, here are the rules on a province by province basis (this table will be updated periodically as information becomes available - if the information is blank for a province, I am in the process of adding it.). You will note that Western Canada has more permissive rules than Eastern Canada!
