History of Gaming Regulation


Negotiations are discontinued with the sponsors of the First Nations casino site recommended in 2008. Negotiations reach an impasse over the longstanding position of the AMC and the Manitoba government that any new casino development would be owned equally by all First Nations, with revenue shared equally among them.

Plans move forward for a different site. A Memorandum of Understanding is signed by the AMC and Swan Lake First Nation to pursue a lease agreement to develop a casino site on reserve land adjacent to Spruce Woods Provincial Park, just south of the TransCanada Highway.
