A. Background

In Prince Edward Island, the Lotteries Commissions Act, with the approval of the Lieutenant Governor in Council, assigns the responsibility for overseeing and regulating gaming with the Minister responsible for the PEI Lotteries Commission, the Deputy Provincial Treasurer, and one other member from the public service, normally a second Deputy Minister. Gaming operations are the responsibility of Atlantic Lottery. In September 2008, the Province of Prince Edward Island introduced a responsible gambling strategy, Leadership, Integrity and Responsibility: A Gaming Strategy for Prince Edward Island, the focus of which was to reduce the negative impacts of gaming, while ensuring that its benefits are realized for Islanders as fully as possible.
