MetadataShow full item record
AbstractAs part of its ongoing commitment, the CPRG is pleased to introduce the expanded Digest, an easily-accessible and searchable report that assembles and summarizes a) accurate statistics about regulated gaming activities across Canada, 2) legislation and its associated regulations and policies, and 3) community initiatives with an emphasis on responsible gambling programs and practices. The purpose of The Digest is to provide a single, consolidated source of factual information about gambling and responsible gambling in Canada that continues to be open and transparent. While considerable effort is made to ensure that the data and information in a given card are comparable across provinces, this is not always possible due to differences in record keeping and other factors. Unless stated otherwise, all data and/or text in each version of The Digest pertain to a fiscal year covering April 1 through March 31. Revenues have been rounded off to the nearest thousand. Information in The Digest is obtained from annual reports, previous Digests, other publicly available documents, websites, and through extensive direct contact with gaming providers, regulators, and other individuals from various organizations and government departments. Data and/or text that is unavailable at the time of publish are denoted through the report as 'unavailable.'
