Gaming and gambling in Canada is a multi-billion-dollar-a-year industry. A significant difference between the gaming and other entertainment sectors is the high level of regulatory oversight and the direct involvement of Crown corporations in the operation of casinos, internet gaming, lotteries, horse racing and other gambling activities.

This new, full-day program will provide you with

  • everything you need to know about the current legal context surrounding the gaming industry
  • the evolving risk-based approach to compliance
  • how to effectively avoid or manage the risks of non-compliance

Learn from some of Canada’s foremost gaming experts as they discuss:

  • Identifying and mitigating common risks
  • Managing the compliance relationship with regulators such as the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario and British Columbia’s Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch
  • Various roles and responsibilities of directors, senior executives, internal audit, external audit, Chief Compliance Officer and compliance departments, General Counsel and outside counsel
  • Understanding compliance activities in relation to different types of gaming operators and suppliers, ranging from family-owned charitable gaming operators to international gaming suppliers – and the impact that different regulatory regimes have on control environments
  • Navigating interrelationships with other regulatory regimes and legal requirements, such as securities, employment, and advertising and marketing law
  • Managing the relationship with Crown corporations and lottery licensees and their responsibilities for the “conduct and management” of lottery schemes
  • Ensuring compliance in specific high-profile areas, such as responsible gambling and anti-money-laundering
