BUILDING SUCCESS

Operational Highlights

The Northern Lights Casino (NLC) is located in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan – the

“Gateway to the North & South”. Our dedicated employees deliver reliable, courteous

and consistent customer service to ensure a positive and unique experience.

SHARING SUCCESS

Volunteerism

Wild fires in northern Saskatchewan during the summer of

2015 created a serious need for community support. NLC

purchased pillows, blankets, towels and clothing for evacuees

who were displaced from their homes for over six weeks. Two

BBQs were organized to feed over 800 people with NLC

volunteers stepping up to cook the food, making a difference

in the local community.

NLC has also volunteered with organizations like Prince Albert

Food Bank, Prince Albert Grand Council Urban Services, the

Heart and Stroke Foundation and the Prince Albert Women’s

Shelter’s First Annual “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes”.

NLC Management and Staff are recognized for their service

on boards and charities throughout the year.
