Practices

Gaming law in Canada is ultimately based on provisions of the federal Criminal Code and related provincial legislation. It can be somewhat puzzling to the uninitiated.

We provide advice on all aspects of legalized gaming initiatives with a focus on government run gaming activities.   As part of our practice we have participated in various legalized gaming initiatives, including lotteries, casino and VLT operations.  

We have acted as counsel to the Western Canada Lottery Corporation for over 30 years.  We provide advice on numerous aspects of their business operations including game conditions, prize payments, general business operational matters and various IT and other projects and procurements.
