What are the Online Gambling Laws in Canada

Online gambling laws in Canada are pretty tolerant considering most online casinos are offshore. Online gambling websites operating inside Canada which may include slots, sports betting and live games such as poker or roulette are 100% legal. All non government run Canadian gambling websites are licensed by the Kahnawake Reservation Gaming Commission, nullifying any anti gambling laws that may have been in place.
