"The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) supports today’s announcement made by the Ford government and iGO on the launch date for the expansion of iGaming and single-event sports betting, ushering in new policy changes that ensure responsible gambling regulations are in place to mitigate gambling harms.

We are pleased that iGO has embedded the RG Check iGaming accreditation program into the licensing requirements for all new operators. RG Check is the preeminent responsible gambling accreditation that is used by jurisdictions around the world to ensure the operators are committed to and can demonstrate that they have the highest degree of gambling safeguards in place. This is a clear and tangible signal of the government’s commitment to making public protection and sustainable play a priority and a key part of creating a culture of responsible gambling here in Ontario.

This is also a key step in helping operators address the unique risks and harms associated with online gambling and RGC looks forward to continuing to work closely with iGO and the government on the implementation of the RG Check iGaming accreditation program and on implementing additional measures, including public education campaigns, to build a world class responsible gambling framework in Ontario.”

Shelley White is one of Canada’s foremost visionary leaders, and has dedicated her life and career to empowering organizations that create better futures for thousands of people in their communities. In 2017, she became the new CEO of the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC).
