The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has become the latest member of the Global Lottery Monitoring System (GLMS), the international association dedicated to protecting the integrity of sports wagering worldwide.

OLG becomes the 33rd member of GLMS and the second Canadian organization to join the association. An agency of the Government of Ontario, OLG manages a successful and regulated sports wagering business that is worth more than $300m in sales.

GLMS President Ludovico Calvi stated: “We are honored to welcome Canada’s largest gaming jurisdiction, Ontario, into GLMS with the addition of OLG. Twice recognized by the World Lottery Association as having the Best Overall Responsible Gambling Program (in 2014 and 2018), OLG brings unique pedigree into the GLMS community of members. OLG joins us at a critical juncture of gaming expansion in Ontario and beyond, as we join forces in the pursuit of enhanced integrity and social responsibility in sports wagering.”

 “OLG is pleased to become a member of GLMS and further strengthen the integrity of sports wagering in Ontario,” said Lori Sullivan, OLG’s Chief Operating Officer. “GLMS’ commitment to providing oversight to the integrity of the global sports betting marketplace aligns with OLG’s reputation for developing world class gaming entertainment for Ontario in a responsible way.”
