Welcome to the British Columbia Responsible & Problem Gambling Program.

We exist to help reduce and prevent the harmful impacts of excessive or uncontrolled gambling. The mandate of the Strategy includes providing free support and treatment services and promoting responsible gambling practices through education and policy development. The BC Responsible Gambling Strategy involves the Province, through the Gaming Policy & Enforcement Branch and the BC Responsible & Problem Gambling Program, and the BC Lottery Corporation.

Responsible Gambling

It’s important to know how to gamble responsibly so that if you choose to gamble, you can do so in a way that keeps it fun and safe. To practice responsible gambling, you need to be informed about how gambling works so you can make decisions that are right for you. It’s also helpful to have a toolkit of strategies available to make sure you stay in control of how much time, money and energy you spend gambling.
