What is a MAST Permit?

The MAST Permit (or Mandatory Alcohol Server Training Permit) is a document required by law for anyone who serves, mixes, sells or who supervises the sale of alcohol for on-premises consumption at liquor licensed establishments. 
The Mandatory Alcohol Server Training is provided by third party providers certified by the WSLCB. Upon successful completion of the course, we will issue you a MAST permit and report the completion to the WSLCB within 30 days. You will receive a Class 12 permit if you are 21 years of age or older or a Class 13 if you are between the ages of 18 and 21.
