Minimum pricing of alcohol is put into practice in Saskatchewan, Canada

On April 1, 2010, the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) introduced a comprehensive set of increased minimum prices on alcohol. The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority has a monopoly on alcohol distribution and also partly controls the sale of alcohol in liquor stores. This means that minimum prices apply directly to liquor store retail prices as well as to the prices at which the SLGA sells alcohol to bars and restaurants.
