If your application is approved, your new manager's certificate is valid for one year.

Conditions of a manager's certificate

  • We can only grant or renew a manager's certificate if you are currently working at a licensed business.    
  • If you cannot provide evidence that you are currently working at a licensed business, we may oppose your application and forward it to the District Licensing Committee for further consideration.
  • If this is the case, you may need to attend a public hearing to determine whether a certificate should be granted.
  • Manager's certificates are portable, which means you can also perform the duties and responsibilities of a manager in another business, unless you are restricted by an arrangement made with the inspector or the police.
