Alberta will be ready to roll come October 17

AGLC has been diligently working for months to select the right partners to bring legal cannabis to Alberta, in a safe and responsible manner while continuing to offer choices Albertans can trust.

For more than 20 years, AGLC has been a regulatory leader in the management of Alberta’s gaming and liquor industries. Our commitment to integrity and offering choices Albertans can trust will continue as our responsibilities expand to include cannabis.
