What Here For Beer Does

Beer is a big part of Canadian culture. For years, we have shared a pint at backyard barbecues, camping trips at the lake, and family gatherings. Here for beer is all about bringing Canadians together over their favourite alcoholic beverage.

Beer is such a big part of our lives that many local breweries serve as a gathering place and community hub.

The current price of what many Canadian beer consumers pay is almost half in taxes. We have one of the highest beer tax rates worldwide, and MPs have the power to decide whether the annual inflation-indexed tax increase on beer is deferred by two years before the next one scheduled for April 2023.

The beer industry is vital to Canada’s economy. The industry employs 19,000 people and supports almost 150,000 jobs across its value chain. Everyone from the farmers to warehouse workers and packaging experts benefits from a thriving and fairly regulated beer industry.

As inflation pushes the price of gas, housing and food, an increase in beer tax could adversely affect the beer economy. Here for beer believes the Canadian government can do more to help their citizens live a happier and more affordable life by eliminating the yearly increase in government beer taxes.
