Canadian Sports Betting

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.

In late November 2020, Canada's Federal government introduced single event sports betting legislation following an announcement by Federal Justice Minister, David Lametti. Under the proposed legislation, each of Canada's provincial and territorial governments will be given the discretion to conduct and manage single event sports betting in their respective jurisdictions. If implemented, this change would open the door to wagering on single event sports in a legal and regulated environment, either online or in land-based facilities. The proposed amendment will have to go through a second reading, followed by a committee review, and a third reading, before possibly being passed by the House of Commons and Senate of Canada.
