The cost of beer, hard liquor and cigarettes are all going up because of changes announced Wednesday in the provincial budget.
Effective at midnight the provincial taxes levied on a package of 25 cigarettes will go from $4.58 to $5.25.
Other tobacco products will also see a tax increase.
When it comes to wines and spirits, provincial taxes will rise on April 1. The government says that a 750 ml bottle of alcohol will cost 50 cents more. A carton of 12 beers will cost an additional 75 cents.
According to the government's budget papers, the revenue measures on the so-called sin taxes will generate an additional $18 million for provincial coffers.
