Canadian Gaming Summit to spotlight lotteries and regulators
The upcoming edition of the Canadian Gaming Summit will feature numerous discussions about regulators and lottery operators as part of its agenda.
The government of Canada has established various crown companies in many of the country’s provinces which have unique structures that make them both lottery operators and their own regional gambling regulators. The forthcoming installment of the Canadian Gaming Summit will feature several of these organizations, like the BCLC and the OLG, the representatives of which will share their insights throughout the core days of the conference.
The first main day will start off with a speech by OLG’s Duncan Hannay, who will be presenting an introduction to the event, as well as to Canadian regulatory authorities and lottery operators as part of the Leaders track.
The short opening session will be followed by a discussion panel on gambling laws and compliance, which will be hosted as part of the same track and will cover topics like how the sector can safeguard its players and deliver enhanced experiences at the same time through the use of various technologies and reworked regulatory frameworks. The discussion will involve many esteemed experts, like the BCLC’s Marie-Noelle Savoie and LGS’ Steve Tunison.
The topic of regulators and lotteries will continue into the following day of the conference with a panel on SIGA’s operations as part of the Leadership and Growth track, involving two of the regulator’s esteemed representatives, Desiree Gervais and Patricia Cook.
Many other regulatory and lottery professionals will star throughout the conference’s agenda, such as iGaming Ontario’s Dave Forestell and SIGA’s Thy Prak, who will share their insights on discussion panels as part of the conference’s Leaders and Land-Based tracks respectively.
