Background Information

In 1976, the four Atlantic provincial governments formed the Atlantic Lottery Corporation (ALC) to market and manage gaming activities on their behalf.

When ALC started up, it had one game, A-1, a passive ticket with a draw held every two weeks. Now, players choose from a selection of more than 14 games, with everything from online to instant to video lottery.

This past year was one of highlights and achievements for ALC. Playsphere was introduced providing Atlantic Canadians with a way to safely and conveniently purchase lottery tickets online. ALC also opened the Charlottetown Driving Park Entertainment Centre in Prince Edward Island. The new centre will revitalize the Islands harness racing industry. Changes to ALC's central gaming system - which manages the thousands of lottery transactions made in Atlantic Canada every day - are making it easier for retailers to manage their lottery business. The change, will improve our retailers' security, inventory control and account management.

ALC has been part of the Atlantic Canadian economy and community for almost 30 years. ALC supports many community events and charities throughout Atlantic Canada. We accomplish this through sponsorship of events celebrating our culture and people. We also stage entertaining promotions designed to raise much-needed funds for worthy charities. From Sydney to Corner Brook, from Miramichi to Charlottetown, ALC sponsors festivals and major events that celebrate the Atlantic Canadian lifestyle.
