Check 30

Check 30 is a program that YLC uses to curb youth from accessing alcohol. If you look 30 years of age or younger, the chances are good servers, liquor inspectors or the RCMP will ask you for identification when purchasing alcohol.

There is evidence that drinking alcohol can harm physical and mental development, particularly in adolescence and early adulthood. For this reason, the Yukon Liquor Corporation (YLC) recommends that youth avoid drinking alcohol for as long as possible.

The Check 30 program focuses on customers aged 19 to 30, who are not as easily identified as being of legal drinking age. It aims to make the process of asking for I.D. more widely accepted by customers, leading to more positive customer responses to ID requests and ultimately to a reduction in alcohol sales to minors.

If you have knowledge of minors accessing alcohol, contact YLC liquor inspectors, 1-800-661-0408 ext. 5245 or the RCMP, 867-667-5555.
