Celebrating St. Patrick’s Day?

Are you making plans for St. Patrick’s Day? We have put together some tips for you all to celebrate a fun and safe St. Patrick’s Day.

1. Get festive! 🍀

Be creative and bring a fun atmosphere into your home or residence room. The simple combination of food, music and a little-bit-of-everything green can help you feel festive and a part of the celebration, while being safe.

2. Stay motivated! 🍀

You can still have fun even if you are planning a sober celebration or just a celebration safely at home. There are many non-alcoholic options that you can prepare for your party and guests.

Items such as ginger ale, soda water with lime, alcohol-free beers and wines, and herbal tea are relatively available at any grocery store and will allow you the freedom to be creative. 👍

3. Relying on the ‘Luck of the Irish’?! 🍀

Drinking and driving, biking, snowboarding, etc. is not something you want to leave to luck. #donttestyourluck

If you are a novice driver or under 22 years, Ontario has a ZERO TOLERANCE rule for alcohol or drugs in your system. Always have a Plan, even if you are just grabbing takeout.


  • Eat before and while you are drinking
  • Pour and count your own drinks and avoid top-ups
  • Alternate with water in between each alcoholic drink
  • Always have a designated driver (DD) or consider taking a cab, Uber, etc.
  • Avoid sharing cups or joints – just do you!
  • Limit yourself to one standard drink per hour, give your body the ability to process the alcohol.
