(Apr. 30/14) The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission (AGLC) announced that all Class A and D licensees must post a fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) prevention sign in a prominent part of their premises, as of April 15. AGLC introduced this policy to remind Albertans of the risks associated with alcohol consumption during pregnancy.

About the poster
At a standard 8.5 x 11 size, the poster comes in vertical and horizontal formats. All licensees should have received the poster on heavy stock glossy paper in the mail, along with an explanation of the new policy. The poster can also be downloaded.

Enforcement

AGLC inspectors will enforce FASD prevention signage in the same way as other mandatory signage, as part of their regular duties.
