In Alberta's current charitable gaming model, for a charitable organization to be eligible for a gaming licence they must demonstrate one of the following charitable purposes:
To be eligible to hold charitable gaming activities, a group must:
- have a broad-based volunteer membership;
- have a democratically chosen executive;
- have unpaid members and directors;
- show that they offer programs that benefit a significant segment of the community, not member’s self-interest or individual/personal benefit; and
- demonstrate that they actively deliver a program or service to the community.
AGLC’s role is to:
- determine eligibility based on policy; and
- approve how an organization can use the proceeds from charitable gaming based on policy.
