Gold Eagle Casino (GEC) opened the doors to the 5,000

square foot smoke room expansion in August 2015. The room

features a state of the art raised floor ventilation system. With

the expansion, a 1,054 square foot multi-purpose room was

The GEC is committed to responsible gaming. With the

coordination of Central Office, GameSense was introduced

this year and GEC continues to maintain their RGCheck

accreditation.

Employee Development Highlights

GEC continues to be one of the largest employers in the

Battlefords, employing over 320 people. This year GEC opened

up a new training lab designated for training and onboarding

of new staff. In addition to the 43 training events offered for

our employees, GEC shifted the development outside of core

training and invested in certificates, professional designations

and developmental conferences supported by SIGA. GEC has

also successfully created several work placement partnerships

with local First Nation and non-First Nation institutions.
