About RGC

Building Knowledge >> Creating Solutions

The Responsible Gambling Council (RGC) is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to problem gambling prevention.

RGC works to reduce gambling risks by creating and delivering innovative awareness and information programs. It also promotes the adoption of improved play safeguards through best practices research, standards development and the RG Check accreditation program.

RGC is committed to bringing together all perspectives in the reduction of gambling problems including those of people with firsthand experience with gambling problems, gaming providers, regulators, policy makers and treatment professionals.  

What's the Problem with Problem Gambling?

Innovative Awareness and Information Programs

RGC works to reduce gambling risks by creating and delivering innovative awareness and information programs for specific age groups and communities, including adults, parents, youth and young adults, older adults, new Canadians and the aboriginal community.

  • Social Marketing Campaign: Stop the Chase

  • Problem Gambling Prevention Week: Listen to Yourself

Improved Safeguards for Safer Play

RGC also promotes the adoption of improved play safeguards through best practices research, standards development and the RG Check accreditation program.

No matter how good you are at awareness programs, you cannot reduce problem gambling simply by changing the patterns of behaviour of the gambler. You have to look at how gambling is provided.
