Canada market is characterized by the monopoly which controls the selection and distributions of wines all over the country through the provincial offices (LCB “Liquor Control Board” sections, for example in Ontario: LCBO – Liquor Control Board Ontario).

In the last period a good agreement called “Ceta” (Comprehensive and Economic Trade Agreement) had been proposed to be adopted between European Union and Canada in order to free the import-export between the 2 countries -wine included- and so to reduce bureaucracy and customs duty.

Unfortunatelly the European Union has delegated the single countries to decide and this means that the approval of the agreement runs the risk to fall!
