A. Background

In 1995, Nova Scotia modernized its gaming legislation by introducing the Gaming Control Act. The Act established, for the first time, two distinct and separate organizations to handle the responsibility of gaming in the Province: One organization to conduct and manage gaming—the Nova Scotia Provincial Lotteries and Casino Corporation (NSPLCC)—and one organization to regulate gaming—the Alcohol Gaming Fuel and Tobacco Division (AGFT) of Service Nova Scotia.

The NSPLCC is a Crown corporation overseeing operations including ticket lotteries, VLTs, and casinos. The day-to-day business activities of NSPLCC are carried out by its operators: Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC), which operates ticket lotteries and VLTs, and Great Canadian Gaming Corporation (GCGC), which owns and operates Casino Nova Scotia in Halifax and Sydney.
