An Excerpt from: Request for Proposal for an Internet Gaming Operator Issued in Ontario

On December 9, 2011, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (“OLG”) issued its long-awaited Request for Proposal (“RFP”) for an operator of online gaming and betting (“iGaming”) conducted and managed by the OLG.

The OLG is a Crown corporation, which acts as a Crown agent on behalf of the Ontario government. Pursuant to the federal Criminal Code, only a provincial government may “conduct and manage” gaming conducted on or through a computer or video device. However, “conduct and management” is interpreted to mean acting as the directing mind of the operation. Day-to-day operational matters may be carried out by private entities retained by the government (in this case, the OLG acting for the government) for that purpose.
