In early 2021, AGLC introduced a market-based facility licensing approach for casinos, racing entertainment centres (RECs) and bingo halls.
This new process allows AGLC to identify opportunity for incremental growth within Alberta’s mature gaming market. AGLC will periodically conduct a market analysis that may identify specific areas of opportunities for overall growth in the province. AGLC may request expressions of interest for proposals that target commercially viable opportunities and initiate the new four-step process for licensing new gaming facilities.
AGLC will initiate this the four-step process, which includes:
Request for Expression of Interest and Application Process
Community Support; and
Construction and Licensing
Details on the four-step market-based facility licensing process is available in:
