Today, the Government of Ontario announced the establishment of iGaming Ontario, a subsidiary of the AGCO, that advances Ontario’s plans to create an open and competitive internet gaming (igaming) market.
iGaming Ontario’s incorporation takes the province a step closer to providing Ontarians with more choice in online gaming experiences within a secure and regulated framework.
Later this year, iGaming Ontario will begin entering into commercial agreements with igaming operators that meet the province’s rigorous standards of game and operator integrity, fairness, player protections and social responsibility.
Once the regulated igaming market launches later this year, players should look for iGaming Ontario’s logo to know the site they are playing on meets all of Ontario standards and has been authorized, allowing them to play with confidence.

The AGCO’s role as regulator will remain the same and will be kept separate from iGaming Ontario’s commercial role. The AGCO will continue to be responsible for regulatory oversight of all gaming activities in Ontario, including private igaming operators and suppliers as well as iGaming Ontario.
