What is this website about?

CanadianSportsbooks.com is a new initiative to protect Canadian sports bettors against unlicensed online bookmakers.  Only the best Canadian sportsbooks that are fully licensed to operate within the country’s borders feature on our pages.

Who can take part?

Besides our industry-leading team of sports betting experts, we invite our readers to engage in the process by leaving reviews of their experience at any of the sports betting sites featured on the site.

How does responsible gambling tie in with this?

Responsible gambling is crucial in ensuring the safety and well-being of customers.

The AGCO, CGA, and regulatory authorities in individual provinces have implemented a range of guidelines that Canadian betting sites must abide by to protect customers’ well-being. Some of these initiatives include deposit limits, self-exclusion, readily available help, and a percentage of profits being used to fund charity organizations.

Are betting sites licensed to operate in my country?

Yes, they are. Since August 27, 2021, sports betting has been legal in the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.

All licensed Canadian sports betting sites must clearly show their license number, company registration details, and address in the footer of their website and in marketing emails.

How are sites selected on CanadianSportsbooks.com?

We look at a range of factors but always with an emphasis on customer safety.

These factors include:

  • Licensing and adherence to provincial regulations
  • Fair payouts and deposit/withdrawal fees
  • Prompt and effective customer support
  • Fairness and transparency
