In Canada, gambling is heavily regulated and with licences awarded only to established casinos and certain companies. The Gaming Control Commission Ontario was the regularity body who regulated and made sure that casino gaming was conducted in the public interest by social and financially responsible agencies. The commission has since been replaced and is now the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. The new commission includes the overseeing of the Alcohol and Gaming Regulation and Public Protection Act in Ontario Canada. It is the regulatory body responsible for administering liquor licences and regulation land based and online casino gaming in Ontario.
