The first phase of construction offers various job opportunities for residents:

The casino is in its first phase of construction, which will see the creation of more than 80 part-time and full-time positions. The new casino will become one of the largest employers in the entire region. This is a great opportunity for locals from all of the industries since the casino’s capacities will have to be filled from scratch.

The preparation for opening has already begun, which means that employers are already looking for people who would fill key positions. It is expected that those positions will be filled by the end of March. Training of new employees is supposed to be finished in April. 

All positions in the new Alberta casino will be available on the casino’s website as soon as the people are found.

Erika Bull-Giroux, a Director of Socio-Economic Development, at Louis Bull Tribe and Board Director of Bear Hills Casino, said: “Louis Bull Tribe is fast becoming one of the newest and largest private employers in Central Alberta. We are seeking enthusiastic applicants who are interested in building their career with us.”

Customers will be able to enjoy a range of popular casino products, including various gaming entertainment options, such as 200 slot machines and 10 thrilling table games. On top of that, the casino will feature live entertainment options, placed across 30.000 square feet.

The resort’s President & CEO, Gordon Rauscher, said: “The opening of the Bear Hills Casino this coming spring is a great achievement for the Louis Bull Tribe, and will also bring a significant amount of economic activity to the Maskwacis and Wetaskiwin regions.” 

Once the casino is finished, it is expected that it will feature a huge event center, a modern hotel, a cultural center, as well as various restaurants that will be able to satisfy the needs of even the pickiest customers.

The opening is expected to be in May this year
