Sports Betting Canada Highlights
Until recently, betting on a single game was illegal in Canada. For this reason, residents of Alberta and the country as a whole place stake either based on a bet, that is, on the results of several sports events at the same time, or used the services of offshore sites.
The cardinal changes in sports betting Canada’s industry occurred on August 27, 2021. Then the Canadian government finally passed a law that allows betting on single games. This event was a huge boost for the industry. New regulated markets for singles sports betting were presented in seven provinces, including British Columbia, Ontario, Manitoba, Newfoundland, Labrador, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island.
As for Alberta, the province joined the ones where singles betting is legal on September 1 of the same year. From that moment on, betting on Super Bowl, the NBA Finals, the Stanley Cup, and many other sporting events became available to fans of the provincial sporting events.
