Is online gambling legal in Canada?

Online gambling in Canada has been in a “grey” area for a while.  The online gambling industry in Canada is in the billions of dollars and millions of Canadians are taking their money to the virtual casinos.  There is nothing stopping Canadians from gambling online because the majority of these online casinos are operated off-shore.  The online casino companies that run the sites are registered in other countries where online gambling is legal.

It is illegal if you play at an online casino located in Canada.  However this is not a problem because the online casinos we recommend are located outside of Canada and are completely legal, licensed and safe.  All the online casinos on our site are officially licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission or are eCOGRA certified which ensures that the online casinos use safe practices, are fair and ensures winners will be paid without any exceptions.

It does seem that parts of Canada are considering legalizing online gambling in Canada.   It only makes sense for Canada to regulate it.  This would result in massive amounts of tax revenue which could be put back in Canada instead of going overseas.  In fact, British Columbia was the first province to legalize online gambling in 2010.  It is only a matter of time till the rest of Canada will legalize online gambling.
