Policy Amendment – Annual Review 2022

Host First Nation Bulletin

October 27, 2022

This bulletin is to advise all Host First Nation facility licensees, charities and registered gaming workers of IMPORTANT AMENDMENTS to the Host First Nation Charitable Casino Policies Handbook. The following policies are effective October 27, 2022.

  • In keeping with Government of Alberta red tape reduction initiatives, these amended policies include changes that provide stakeholders with increased flexibility and efficiency in running their operations:
    • Section 1 was amended to remove repetitive policy requirements and to update minor changes already made to the Casino Terms & Conditions and Operating Guidelines (CTCOG).
    • Section 2 was updated to reflect changes to the terminology surrounding background checks.
    • Sections 3 and 4 have been streamlined to identify policies that are specific to Host First Nation charities. Redundant policies that are operational at the casino level have been removed and remain within the CTCOG.
    • Section 5 was amended to remove redundant electronic gaming policy that is available in the CTCOG.
    • Minor changes occurred in Sections 6 and 7 involving the updating of terminology regarding “background checks” and the removal of the “Guidelines” heading.
