AFN Gaming Commission

The Acadia First Nation has a number of licensed gaming operations operating within Acadia First Nation reserves. As part of the licensing, a gaming agreement has been entered into between the Province of Nova Scotia and the Acadia First Nation. The gaming agreement provides for the establishment of a gaming commission to oversee the gaming agreement and the gaming operations. The gaming agreement provides that in the absence of a Gaming Commission the First Nation Chief and Council become the Gaming Commission of record.

The mission of the Acadia First Nation Gaming Commission is to oversee the operations and personnel and provide strategic and daily advice and direction on the gaming operations. The AFN Gaming operations will endeavour to manage the gaming operations as viable and competitive business - individually and collectively. The responsibility of the gaming commission is to act upon matters which do not directly fall within the scope of the business managers and provide consistent and sound advice on these matters.
