Vision, Mission and Values

In 2019, RGC published its new 5-year strategic plan in which we renewed our vision, mission and values.

Our vision

A world free of problem gambling.

Our mission

To prevent problem gambling and
reduce its impacts. 

We accomplish our mission by focusing on: 

  • Empowering those who choose to gamble to make informed and sensible choices.
  • Influencing decision makers — policy makers, gaming providers and others — to integrate best practices into gambling products and safeguards.
  • Raising public awareness to generate understanding and support for problem gambling prevention.

Specifically, we:

  • Build awareness and understanding of the risks associated with and the strategies to prevent problem gambling.
  • Identify and share best prevention practices.
  • Establish standards and provide accreditation.
  • Bring people together to promote dialogue and find common ground.
  • Help connect those with gambling problems to community supports.

Our core values

  • Humanity — We believe in human dignity and respect. We're driven to build a positive future for everyone and we work to transform our knowledge into conditions that create positive behavioural change. 
  • Integrity — We strive to meet the highest standards of professionalism and impartiality. We hold ourselves responsible for all that we do.  
  • Courage — We believe it takes courage to make real change in the world. We appreciate confidence in others and we are never afraid to offer honest, evidence-informed perspectives, even if they conflict with conventional wisdom 
  • Ingenuity — We are inventive and resourceful, curious, and inquisitive by nature. As the world keeps changing, we are always on the look-out for new ways to turn our knowledge into action.
