In an effort to help ensure Albertans who choose to drink are reminded that there are risks with alcohol consumption during pregnancy, the AGLC is asking its business stakeholders to help spread the message. All Class A and Class D licensees are now required to post FASD prevention signage in their premises.
“FASD affects entire communities, and the AGLC is proud to contribute in raising awareness and greater understanding of this issue. A simple reminder in liquor stores or bars will keep the message that pregnancies and alcohol don’t mix top of mind for patrons.”
- Bill Robinson, President & CEO of the AGLC
I.D. Under 25 requirement for buying lottery tickets - April 1, 2014
As of April 1, AGLC is introducing an I.D. Under 25 Years program for all lottery ticket retailers. Lottery ticket retailers must now ask for ID for anyone who appears to be under the age of 25. The ability to determine the age of young people can be difficult and using picture identification is the best way to confirm their age.
In addition to the I.D. Under 25 policy, AGLC will continue its practice of not selling any lottery products to minors (any person under the age of 18) as well as not allowing them to play or receive payment of prize money for lottery ticket or Sport Select products.
The I.D. Under 25 campaign features a poster and merchandise strip for all lottery ticket retailers.
