There are two associations in Canada that oversee honest online casinos and all the gambling that takes place online:
1. Canadian Gaming Association
This is a non-profit organisation that deals with the awareness of online gambling in Canada by promoting ethical values in the Canadian gaming industry, and through studies, innovations and education drives. The association also provides a forum where online players, gaming professionals and the Canadian government can come together and engage in productive dialogue. The ultimate aim of these discussions is to make sure that everyone is aligned legally to the national legislative framework when it comes to online casinos in Canada.
2. Kahnawake Gaming Commission
Kahnawake Gaming Commission regulates and licenses several online casinos, sportsbooks and online poker rooms, as well as three in-house casinos located within its jurisdiction. The commission was set up in 1996 after the Mohawk Council enacted the Kahnawake Gaming Law. This gave the territory the right to govern gambling laws autonomously. Over and above this, the Kahnawake Mohawks are allowed full sovereignty to govern themselves, allowing for over 50 trustworthy online casinos in Canada to be licensed there.
