Canada Online Regulations and Gambling Laws    

Online gambling is now a popular form of entertainment globally including in Canada, and it is a time in which everyone wants to enjoy the latest online slot releases, live dealer games and table games at premier Canadian casinos.  Some Canadians are hesitant while others dive in and create online accounts at some of the best online casinos while gambling regulations in Canada are clouded by uncertainty.

The online gambling industry continues to grow at a rapid pace, and while other countries have gambling legislations in place, in Canada, it remains a gray area. The country has been caught between Great Britain and America for several years and Canada it’s been a struggle to establish an identity of its own since the two major countries surrounding it makes a bit more challenging.

In America, the Government indicates that is against online gambling although is could be for moral reasons and at the same time to promote responsible gambling. It has also been said that the primary cause of the resistance is to keep the income worth multi-millions for themselves. America added the Anti-terrorism Act in 2006 that made credit card use at online casinos illegal. Speculation has it that it was to prevent citizens from spending money at offshore online casinos based in Costa Rica, Antigua, and Malta, while the Wire Act of 1961 was for the motion, it was ruled not to apply to online poker.

Interestingly enough the British Parliament supports online gambling and has passed in 2005 a Gambling Act that made online gambling legal provided the websites are operated from within the country. Online casinos established in the country are strictly regulated and taxed to ensure lawful operations, and it remains to be seen if any law changes will take place after Brexit.

The Criminal Code Of Canada, The Hesitant Approach Of The Government and The Sovereign Nation All Plays A Part In Making Things More Complex In Canada. In Canada, it was illegal before 1969 to bet on anything besides horse races at fairs and charity lotteries and in the same year, the federal government changed the criminal code to allow ten provinces to host gambling machines and lotteries. The federal government handed gambling over to in 1985 to individual region level while the criminal code never changed.

The criminal code states that it is illegal to partake in betting house activities or to operate one and it is unclear if poker sites and online casinos are included in this code. The Section 207 states that lotteries operated via computers is included in the lottery schemes and while some provinces are very hesitant a few others have grabbed the opportunity to get in on the gambling action.

Situated on the outside of Montreal is the Kahnawake Mohawk Nation who claims that they are independent and feel they are not forced to adhere to the laws of outsiders. The Kahnawake Gambling Commission was established in 1996 and has ever since licensed qualifying casinos, while this gambling regulatory commission gets away with hosting both land-based and online casinos inside of the Canadian borders without being prosecuted legally operated horserace establishments are forbidden. Canada seems to be hesitant when it comes to making a decision to completely ban or legalize online gambling. Especially since its laws have been boycotted, by the Kahnawake Mohawk Nation, which makes if challenging to initiate strict prohibitions. Legal Canadian online casinos located in Canada are not that hard to find although it is tough to operate an online casino from within Canada.

Online Gambling Wins Taxing

Many Canadians are playing at online casinos despite the fact that it might be legal or not and while enjoying online casino gaming there remains the question about taxes payable on winnings. Currently, players enjoying huge wins are save since Canada is one of few countries that do not tax winnings achieved at land-based or online casinos.

 

Canada and Online Gambling 

Legally, there are ten provinces, which still have the last say in their region regarding gambling, however Federally, the Criminal Code stays unchanged. Canadian players can still visit legal casinos in British Columbia and Ontario while the best poker rooms are Quebec based. There are thousands of online casinos targeting the Canadian market and players eager to enjoy real money games are welcome at several premier online casinos. Even though online gambling is a gray are for citizens of Canada, a Canadian lawyer, Michael Lipton is of the opinion that residents who partake in online gambling at offshore casinos are not committing a criminal offense.
