In June 2021, Canada finally passed bill C-
In Canada, the provinces are in charge of gaming. The first province to take advantage of this local legal change will be the province of Ontario, where the AGCO have announced that they will create a framework toward an open market with an uncapped number of available licenses. As a result we will likely see more than 40 licensed and legal Ontario sports betting sites at the time of market launch in early 2022. This may lead the way for other provinces to join Ontario in the future, or perhaps spur them to create their own markets it they have a significant population base.
The short answer is: Yes. It’s easy for some folks to be confused by the issue of
the legality of sports and baseball wagering in Canada. Some people wonder why sportsbook
companies advertise on Canadian television but always finish by saying “this is not
a gambling site” and that the site they are advertising is only for fun or for checking
scores and odds. You see, companies like those below are not allowed to advertise

About My Baseball Betting Listings:
Why is my list so tiny? I only list betting companies that I consider to be the best for Canadians. Would it really make sense for me to research 20 companies and then rank them one through 20? Would you sign up with sportsbook number 18? Not a chance!
That’s why I try to keep things simple. If a company fails to meet my uniquely Canadian criteria, it doesn’t get listed.
Why might a site fail to get listed? Limited baseball betting offerings, poor payout record like withholding player funds or placing limits on the accounts of winning players, not offering CAD wagering or not offering mobile betting.
Each site I list has satisfied my review criteria, however, they are each different in their service offerings. So read the reviews and choose based on your own preferences and requirements, not a phoney rating scheme. If you like to shop for the best odds, it might make sense to sign up with more than one so that you can maximise your winnings.
Bodog is one of the oldest brand names in the business, established in 1994. Bodog is specially targeted to the Canadian market, so you know they cater to our preferences. Read the full review here.
