Bill C-311, an Act to Amend the Importation of Intoxicating Liquors Act, has now passed second reading in the House of Commons and has been referred to the House Finance Committee (you can read the Hansard debate here). This Act, if eventually passed at third reading, will amend the IILA to introduce a national personal use exemption to permit direct to consumer shipment of limited quantities of wine between provinces for personal use. The Act has gained support from all federal parties and continues to receive very positive media coverage and public support.
