About the Self-Exclusion Program

The AGLC, working in conjunction with Alberta Health Services and the gambling industry, has developed a number of programs to educate gamblers about responsible gambling and to assist problem gamblers.

In Alberta, if someone feels that he/she is having trouble controlling his/her gambling, enrolling in the casino and racing entertainment centre (REC) self-exclusion program is one option. This program enables the participant to voluntarily ban him/herself from all Alberta casinos and RECs for a specified period of time selected by the participant (ranging from six months to five years). It is possible to re-enroll in the program upon agreement expiry.

Because the purpose of the program is to help participants stay out of casinos and RECs and avoid the gambling opportunities these venues represent, any detected attempts by participants to enter a casino or REC will result in removal from the property and if the violations persist, fines and/or dismissal from the program will result.

Joining the Program

Self-Exclusion Agreement forms are available at all Alberta casinos, RECs and AGLC offices. Advisors at GameSense Info Centres, located in 26 casinos and two RECs, are very knowledgeable about the self-exclusion program and can answer questions and provide assistance with completion of the Application form. A sample Self-Exclusion Agreement form is provided here for your reference.
