The Licence Appeal Tribunal hears licensing and registration appeals under various ministries statutes. The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is charged with the administration and enforcement of the regulatory framework, which governs the liquor and gaming sectors in the province. The AGCO also sets and enforces standards in the gaming and beverage alcohol industries where the risks of illegal activity and potential social costs are significant.
