Casinos in Canada

There are more than 100 land-based casinos in Canada. The casinos range from small facilities with only electronic gaming machines, to larger luxury resorts with over a thousand slots, many gaming tables, and private high roller gaming rooms. With the many choices available, you will find a Canadian casino that suits you.

Gambling is legal throughout Canada. Each province or territory has its own gambling laws that define the legal gambling age, and what gambling is permissible. In Alberta, Manitoba, and Quebec, the legal gambling age is 18, and in the rest of Canada, the legal gambling age is 19.

Gambling was legalized in Canada in 1969, when the law was changed in order to allow provinces and territories to use lotteries to raise funds for worthwhile causes. The list of legalized forms of gambling grew, and now encompasses most forms of government regulated gambling, including casinos.
