It did contain one unanticipated modification: a proviso directing 30% of all First Nations casinos' slot machine revenues to the Alberta Lottery Fund for provincial charitable use (Belanger & Williams, 2012b).
For Alberta they were: Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) annual reports and the Alberta Lottery Fund website, which lists the details of all First Nations Development Fund (FNDF) disbursements; FNDF revenues and their utilization were obtained from the AGLC's public website, Alberta Lottery Fund: Who Benefits.
An independent report on gaming in Alberta is recommending a dramatic decrease in the dollars that come from slot machines on First Nations and are handed over to the Alberta Lottery Fund.
"The most uncontentious adjustment would be to redirect the 30 per cent of First Nations slot machine revenue that currently goes to the Alberta Lottery Fund back into the First Nations Development Fund for the use of First Nations communities that do not currently host casinos" is one of six recommendations presented in Gambling in Alberta: History, Current Status, and Socioeconomic Impacts.
Under that policy, 30 per cent of slot revenue is divided between the operator and the First Nation's registered charity, 30 per cent goes to the Alberta Lottery Fund, and 40 per cent is put into the First Nations Development Fund.
It also bans Catholic organizations from applying for funding from the Alberta Lottery Fund or other sources that raise money from gambling.
For example, the programs examined in this paper, located throughout the province of Alberta, Canada, are supported in part by the Alberta Lottery Fund. Because gambling carries moral baggage that income and sales taxes do not, the TPB brings added insight to the evaluation of funding for sports public goods and to the use of gambling proceeds to fund other government programs, as well.
In fiscal 2006/2007, the Alberta Lottery Fund expects to spend $0.5 million hosting major athletic events and to provide ASRPWF with $20.5 million (http://albertalotteryfund.ca/money_goes/).
The third section asked seven questions about whether respondents think that Alberta Lottery Fund allocations to specific programs are appropriate.
Respondents are asked "On a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 means Strongly Disagree, 3 is neutral, and 5 is Strongly Agree, please tell me how much you agree or disagree with each of the next three statements: (1) It would go against my principles to support the Alberta Lottery Fund's use of gambling money to fund amateur sport and recreation, (2) I would feel guilty if I supported the Alberta Lottery Fund's use of gambling money to fund amateur sport and recreation and (3) It would be morally wrong for me to support the Alberta Lottery Fund's use of gambling money to fund amateur sport and recreation." Albertans are mostly untroubled by gambling's moral implications.
Other financial help came from the Alberta Lottery Fund and the people of Edmonton.
It is offered at no cost to youth aged 14 to 25 and is funded by the Alberta Lottery Fund and Aboriginal and Northern Affairs Canada.
