Canada

Online gaming falls into two main categories in Canada – provincial and First Nation. According to Canadian law, only provincial governments are authorized to offer online gaming to their citizens. But First Nation tribes like the Kahnawake have consistently maintained that they have the right to license and regulate online gaming sites, and that those sites should be available to the world wherever online gaming is legal. As a result, the Kahnawake Tribe independently licenses and hosts online gaming sites for a wide variety of online gaming operators. Other First Nation tribes are also exploring their options.

Several provinces offer online gaming to their citizens. British Columbia was the first to enter the online gaming market when it launched its online casino, PlayNow.com, in 2010.

Unlike the United States, Canada has adopted a relaxed stance toward offshore online casinos, and most provinces have chosen not to block them or try to prosecute them. Instead, they allow Canadians to bet with those sites, hoping the provincial offerings will be both competitive and safer.

Québec passed legislation in May 2016 that compels internet service providers (ISPs) to block access to a list of unlicensed sites. The province experienced a surge in the popularity of online gambling.

Canadian residents are able to bet on sports online, but single-game sports betting is illegal. A handful of provinces provide their own “sports lotteries” for residents of their territories. Single-game wagers are still prohibited nationwide. Even at the provincial level, bets must consist of at least two games, known as a parlay.
