What is Smart Choices? Do I need this training?

Smart Choices is Manitoba’s responsible service training program, which includes a responsible gambling module. In establishments with a liquor licence, managers, security and staff who do not already have Serving It Safe or It’s Good Business training must successfully complete Smart Choices before starting to work in a licensed service establishment.

Some First Nations VLT sites do not have liquor licences. The LGCA and Addictions Foundation of Manitoba work with these establishments to ensure staff have responsible gambling training. Staff do not need to take Smart Choices if the establishments where they work do not have a liquor licence.
