Initial consultations will take place with charitable organizations, with broader stakeholder input commencing later in 2019
The Alberta Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Commission (AGLC) has commenced a review of Alberta’s charitable gaming model
. At this point, AGLC is only accepting input from licensed charitable organizations, who have been directly emailed a survey with a completion deadline of February 8, 2019. Although at this point, input is only accepted from charitable organizations, AGLC will offer a second consultation phase later in 2019, which will be open to broader stakeholders and Albertans, and include online surveys and town halls.
RMA encourages members to support charitable organizations within their communities in completing the survey, and share with them the final report of the RMA’s Charitable Gaming Committee
, which includes several principles and recommendations as to how the model can be improved to reduce the current equity gap between urban and rural organizations engaged in the gaming model.
Although the exact details of the broader consultation process are not yet known, AGLC has indicated that space may be limited for some consultation processes and events, and encourages interested parties to indicate their interest through email to firstname.lastname@example.org
RMA will provide members with further updates as information becomes available.
