Excerpt from: CHANGES TO HEARINGS AND APPEALS IN GAMING REGISTRATION MATTERS IN ONTARIO
Effective July 1, 2011, all responsibility for new hearings and appeals commenced under the Gaming Control Act, 1992 involving the registrations granted to persons involved in the Ontario gaming industry will no longer be conducted by the Board of the gaming regulator, the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (the “AGCO”). Henceforth, all such hearings and appeals will be made before a general purpose adjudicative agency, the Licence Appeal Tribunal (“LAT”). Hearings and appeals that were once heard by the Board of the AGCO, a body dedicated to gaming and alcohol licensing issues, will now be heard by the LAT, which is responsible for hearings under approximately 23 different provincial statutes.
