Illegal Gaming and Liquor Offences

The Counter Exploitation Unit works closely with Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba and Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries to investigate illegal gaming activities and any related offences.

Under the The Liquor and Gaming Control Act, this unit, along with the Liquor and Gaming Authority of Manitoba, has authority to enforce the liquor laws within the act.

Ticket Scalping

Ticket Scalping is the practice of buying tickets to an event and reselling them for more than the original cost. With the recent and upcoming changes to Winnipeg’s event scene (re-introduction of the Winnipeg Jets, new Investors Group Field, Convention Centre expansion, and the fast moving downtown revitalization effort) ticket scalping has become a more prominent issue. Enforcement is regulated under the Provincial Legislation under the Amusements Act.

If you or anyone you know wishes to contact members of the Counter Exploitation Unit in regard to illegal gaming, liquor control or ticket scalping they can be reached at:
