New Year, New leadership

Alain Maisonneuve named AGLC’s President & CEO

The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) forges into a new year under new but experienced leadership. Effective December 5, 2017, Alain Maisonneuve is the AGLC’s President & CEO for a five-year term. After serving in the acting role for nine months, he was named the successful candidate in an open, public selection process.

Alain comes to the role with over 30 years of experience through his work in various positions within the Alberta Liquor Control Board (ALCB), the provincial Department of Gaming, and the AGLC. Through his work with the gaming and liquor industries, he has developed strong relationships with stakeholders and built a broad base of industry knowledge.

As a long-standing employee of the AGLC, Alain has had the privilege of seeing how the organization has grown and developed over the years as well as the significant changes that have occurred in how liquor and gaming is provided in Alberta—from the privatization of the liquor model, to the introduction of VLTs, to the establishment of the AGLC, to the undertaking of the regulation and distribution of cannabis. Alain’s career has given him the vision to understand change and opportunity—while respecting the past.

The AGLC’s ability to provide choices Albertans can trust is driven by the commitment of our employees, their experience and knowledge, and the relationships we have developed with stakeholders within the gaming and liquor industries—and Alain is a perfect example of this.
