Responsible Gambling Council
A leading non-profit organization dedicated to the prevention of problem gambling in Canada is the Responsible Gambling Council (RGC). This organization promises to consider all perspectives in its fight, consulting with gaming providers, regulatory agencies, policy makers, professional counselors/psychologists and recovering problem gamblers.
The RGC works to reduce gambling risks – particularly among youth – by creating and delivering innovative awareness and information programs. On the industry side, the RGC acts as a sort of informal watchdog via its “Responsible Gambling Check” accreditation program; the NGO also encourages adoption of evolving safeguards and best-practice research among gaming providers.
RGC promises to continue its innovative awareness-raising program in Canada to those of all age groups and ethnicities.

“No matter how good you are at awareness programs, you cannot reduce problem gambling simply by changing the patterns of behavior of the gambler. You have to look at how gambling is provided.” – Jon Kelly, Responsible Gambling Council CEO
