Internal taxation of imports
On October 27, 2015 the government of Alberta proposed in its budget a tax hike on out-of-province craft beer. Under existing law, all craft breweries (those producing less than 20,000 hectolitres of beer) are taxed at 20 cents a litre, regardless of their location. Post-budget, out-of-province breweries were subject to a beer tax of $1.25 per litre. That $1.25 tax increase averages out to a $3 increase per out-of-province six pack of craft beer, applied both to imports and to beer from other Canadian provinces.
This measure is included in the GTA database because it disadvantages foreign beer at the expense of certain domestic beers.
