Ontario Online Opening Begins New Era In Canadian Gaming

In this episode, Paul Burns, CEO and president of the Canadian Gaming Association, joins VIXIO GamblingCompliance’s chief analyst James Kilsby to discuss the rollout of single-event sports betting across Canada as well as the imminent opening of Ontario’s online gambling market to registered private operators through a groundbreaking regulatory model.

While regulatory standards are now in place, question marks remain over the effective tax rate in Ontario and whether international liquidity will be allowed, with requirements of Canadian federal law meaning the Ontarian market is set to be unique in the global online gambling industry and very different from US states. Another unknown is how quickly other provinces might open their own online markets to private operators and whether other jurisdictions could take a less liberal approach on matters of licensing and legacy operations.
