In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of available online poker rooms suitable for Canadian players. Canadian online poker rooms have won the trust of players across the country. However, regardless of the offerings, there are some key factors to consider when choosing the most suitable rooms for Canadian players.
Canada has become known as the online gambling grey area due to the fact that there is no current law outlawing online poker. There is no risk of prosecution or confiscation of their funds for engaging in these activities, as there are no laws under the Canadian Criminal Code regarding playing in offshore poker rooms. However, due to the fact that Canada is geographically divided, you may encounter some laws related to a particular county. All provinces of the country, with the exception of Saskatchewan, have taken a step towards online poker. Manitoba, Quebec and BC have been offering online poker to their residents since 2009. However, the laws are quite lenient, which is why many talented poker players move to Canada from the United States.
Canadian citizens have been accepted by almost all internet poker room on the worldwide market since the whole industry took off in the 90s. Although Canadian online gambling regulations are quite straightforward and don’t consider offshore company activities illegal, these laws have never been directed against any offshore companies or their customers. Government crackdown seems quite unlikely, as no politician or government entity seems seriously interested in pursuing stricter regulations.
As a result, all Canadian poker players can enjoy playing in most important poker rooms without having to worry about the safety of their deposits or withdrawal limitations.
