Malta enters MOU with Canadian Gaming Commission


Malta’s Lotteries and Gaming Authority (LGA) entered into a bilateral Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (Canada).

This was an agreement aimed at exchanging information on eligibility assessments of applicants as well as compliance and regulatory assurance activities with respect to gaming.

They have also agreed to possible joint, cooperative or collaborative inspections, investigations and enforcement activities. The two jurisdictions will contribute to the development of joint operational and technical standards for gaming, testing and certification of equipment and software.

Issues such as accepting respective testing activities; employee exchange and twinning programs; non duplication of requirements and controls and server location are all on the table for future development.

The MOU was signed by Mr Reuben Portanier, CEO of the Lotteries and Gaming Authority and Mr Jean Major, Registrar of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
