Responsible Gambling

The AGLC is committed to responsible gambling.

On its own, and in conjunction with industry partners, the AGLC has developed the following programs and initiatives to help licensees and the public meet the social responsibility requirements set out in legislation, regulation and policy:


Smart Training Programs

The AGLC Smart Training Programs are a best-in-class series of competency-based courses that educate and inform staff and management in the gaming and liquor industries.

Proven effective by third-party studies, the AGLC Smart Training programs are designed to help servers and licensees fulfill their social responsibilities and duty of care obligations, raise awareness of problem gambling and alcohol behaviours, and to reduce the risk of liability.

The AGLC is a national leader in education and training for responsible gambling and the responsible service, sale and consumption of alcohol.
