Occupant Load Permit

Occupant Load Calculations for Liquor Licences

The City no longer issues Occupant Load permits, nor do we provide occupant load calculations for LCRB (Liquor and Cannabis Regulation Branch) liquor licence applications. However, we will supply a letter for the LCRB stating that fact. Please contact Building Inspections staff at building.inspections@nanaimo.ca, or call 250-755-4429 to request this letter. This letter will be a requirement of your submission to the LCRB.
