Liquor Permits

BOOKINGS

MCGILL CAMPUS PERMITS

To get a permit (known officially as a “Reunion Permit”) on campus to serve alcoholic beverages, you will need to complete ALL of the following steps. Make sure there is at least 6 weeks until your event (8 weeks including room booking), as this entire process is lengthy and complex. This process does not apply to the SSMU building.


1. Ensure the VP Events is aware and approves of your request through email.
2. Ensure you have enough server trained volunteers allowed to serve alcohol during your event. There are sessions every 1-2 weeks, so ensure your committee is trained ahead of time.
3. Any room booking requests in the Bronfman building must be made through the MUS. Bookings elsewhere on campus are applied for directly through the website in the next step.
4. Fill out your event information here. Note: you must be on McGill WiFi or VPN to access this website. Select “Management Undergraduate Society” as your affiliation unless your club is explicitly specified.
5. You will now need to wait for 5 different approvals in order to obtain McGill’s letter of authorization. If asked for additional information for one of these approvals, please refer the matter to the VP Events before responding.
6. Once your approvals are in place, you’ll need to pick up your letter of authorization from New Rez and get this signed by Kevin Byers from McGill Security (make an appointment).
7. With this letter, you must now set up an appointment with Constable Boccardi of the SPVM 20 (514-280-0420) to get police approval of your event.
8. Fill out the RACJ’s form for the application of a reunion permit. You are applying on behalf of a non-profit organization “Management Undergraduate Society, Inc” with NEQ number 1140996472. The declaration on section 4B does not need to be filled, as it is included in McGill’s authorization letter.
9. Drop the form off at the Régie at 1, rue Notre-Dame Est on the 9th floor.
a) You must attach McGill’s letter, the SPVM letter, and a letter from the MUS attesting to your authorization to apply on its behalf.
10. If the Régie contacts you with any questions, please refer to the VP Events before responding.
11. If approved, place your permit visibly for the duration of your event.
