About Us


Being Responsible

The AGLC has developed standards, guidelines, programs, brochures and posters to help ensure gaming and liquor activities are conducted responsibly and with integrity.

A crown commercial enterprise, the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) is an agent of the Government of Alberta and consists of a Board and a Corporation.

Our structure includes:

  • A seven-member Board that reports through the Chair to the Minister of Treasury Board and Finance who is responsible for the Gaming and Liquor Act; and
  • Seven divisions that manage the day-to-day operations of the organization.

The AGLC Board develops policy, conducts hearings, and makes licensing and registration decisions to ensure that Alberta’s liquor and gaming industries are well regulated and well managed to benefit the people of the province. It also ensures the powers and duties of the AGLC are carried out.

The AGLC’s role is to administer the Gaming and Liquor Act, Regulation and related policy. The AGLC is responsible for regulating Alberta’s charitable gaming activities and conducting and managing provincial gaming activities. It also controls the manufacture, importation, sale, purchase, possession, storage, transportation, use and consumption of liquor in Alberta.

Core Businesses

The AGLC has two core businesses: liquor and gaming.

These core businesses are established in accordance with the Gaming and Liquor Act, the Gaming and Liquor Regulation, and the Criminal Code of Canada.


Driven by a bold and balanced approach, AGLC will be a leader in creating progressive gaming and liquor experiences trusted and enjoyed by Albertans.


Our promise is to ensure responsible gaming and liquor choices that deliver economic and social benefit to Albertans.


The AGLC is committed to operating according to the following values:

  • Integrity - We play by the rules, do the right thing and do what we say we’ll do.
  • Respect - We create an environment where each individual is valued and heard, and celebrate the diversity that makes us stronger.
  • Collaboration - Together we are better. Working as a team and with our partners we achieve extraordinary results.
  • Innovation - We imagine the possibilities. We challenge ourselves to look beyond what is to what can be.
  • Excellence - We are all leaders. We work with passion, pride and purpose and own our part in the success of the team.

The AGLC supports these values via our Code of Conduct and Ethics.

Information about the AGLC’s goals, strategies, and performance measures can be found in our Business Plan. The AGLC Annual Reports and Reviews also provide actual financial and performance results.

We are committed to establishing a friendly and open dialogue with Albertans, and we welcome your comments.
