ALSA welcomes a new partner, AMA Grant Ventures Ltd. For more information and to view their website please visit http://www.amagrantventures.com.
The Alberta Liquor Store Association
In efforts to increase awareness and help prevent Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), the Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) has updated its mandatory FASD poster for all Class A and Class D licensed premises. As a Class A or D licensee, they require all of us to post the new mandatory FASD poster in a prominent area of our premises on September 9, 2016. This is in accordance with Sections 3.1.3 and 3.2.4 of the Licensee Handbook and Section 3.3.8 of the Retail Liquor Store Handbook. This poster replaces the previous mandatory FASD poster.
Two 8x11 versions of the new mandatory FASD poster are available - in addition to a larger 11x17 option that can be downloaded on the AGLC website at aglc.ca
This poster is part of this fall’s DrinkSense brand launch. DrinkSense will represent all of AGLC’s responsible drinking programs, including FASD awareness. FASD is 100% preventable if the use of alcohol is avoided during any stage of pregnancy. The AGLC is confident that this poster will help remind Albertans that there are risks with consuming alcohol during pregnancy.
The AGLC thanks you for being a valuable partner in AGLC’s social responsibility efforts. If you have any questions, please contact Carmen Longworth, Social Responsibility Coordinator – Liquor, AGLC, at 780-447-7508.
