The Crown Corporation That Regulates Private Liquor Stores: Saskatchewan Liquor & Gaming Association

Alexandra Burnett, Briefing Note, Crown Corporations

Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) is a provincially-owned Crown corporation. SLGA is responsible for the regulation and distribution of liquor, gaming, and as of recently, cannabis products in Saskatchewan. SLGA is responsible for managing most of the province’s electronic gaming machines and VLTs across the province.

In 2016, SLGA introduced a transition to reduce the number of SLGA retail liquor stores. As of March 31, 2018, only two SLGA operated stores are remaining to be closed and replaced by private retailers.
