The national partnership grows. Quebec and the Atlantic provinces join the Interprovincial Lottery Corporation, paving the way for national lottery games. The federal government retires from the lottery field.
Manitoba reviews its policies. Manitoba declares a moratorium on casino nights and establishes the Manitoba Lotteries Review Committee (The Haig Report) to look at provincial gaming policy. The Committee recommends strict limits on the number of gaming events, close monitoring of activities and no more than 90 charitable casino events per year.
