The Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB) is one of the largest distributors and retailers of beverage alcohol in Canada, generating a net income of approximately $1.08 billion on annual sales of approximately $3.3 billion in fiscal 2016/17. LDB has a workforce of approximately 4,000 full and part-time employees, operates 197 retail stores across the province, oversees the operations of approximately 220 Rural Agency Stores and has the role of wholesaler to approximately 700 private liquor retail outlets and 10,000 licensed establishments.

The LDB is a unique government entity that operates with similar independence to a Crown Corporation under the direction of a General Manager and CEO.

In February 2018, the LDB was assigned to distribute, wholesale and sell non-medicinal cannabis inclusive of a government owned online channel with a mandate to support government’s key priorities of protecting children and youth, ensuring health and safety standards, and keeping the criminal element out of the supply chain.

The Accounts Clerk is responsible for verifying financial information, resolving anomalies, performing reconciliations; and processing transactions including journal vouchers, period end accruals, accounts receivable/banking transactions, and issuing invoices to customers, in compliance with the LDB’s financial management framework.   The Clerk also responds to inquiries, maintains electronic and paper files, and contributes to the improvement of policies, procedures and systems to enhance the accuracy, efficiency and timeliness of all aspects of financial transaction processing.
