Canadian Race and Sports Wagering

Pari-mutuel betting on horse races is regulated and supervised by the Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency (CPMA), a special operating agency within Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.

After years of sustained growth, at the turn of the millennium the Canadian pari-mutuel betting market began to feel the negative effects of competition from casinos and VLT locations throughout Canada.

Sports betting in Canada is established under the umbrella of Sport Select, which varies slightly according to the provincial lottery corporations that offer it. Originally set up for wagering on major North American professional sports leagues, Sport Select now includes English Premier League soccer and U.S. college basketball. Under the law, only parlay bets can be made, in which players must bet on a minimum of two games (three in some provinces) in one wager. There have been a number of attempts to bring single-game sports betting to Canada. The latest attempt – bill C-290, which passed the House of Commons in 2012 – has been blocked by the Senate for more than three years.
