When privitization of liquor stores comes up, Alberta is always shown as an example of how cheap and easily obtainable it is there. Although I can’t speak to the availability of it, I decided to take a quick look into the price of a commonly available beer at each province in Canada. To do this, a 24 can pack of Budweiser was chosen, and prices were obtained from retailer websites across Canada.
Data was gathered from provincial liquor control website or from retailers website if not available.
