Acts and Regulations - Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency

The Canadian Pari-Mutuel Agency's (CPMA) regulatory framework consists of laws, regulations, regulatory documents (for example, Policy Papers), licences and authorizations.

Section 204 of the Criminal Code is the legislative authority by which the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food may make regulations in respect of pari-mutuel betting (Pari-Mutuel Betting Supervision Regulations). CPMA maintains this regulatory framework to govern and ensure the integrity of pari-mutuel betting systems in Canada. The key objective is to establish compliance with the Regulations in an efficient and effective manner, thereby protecting the interest of the betting public.

When required, the CPMA pre publishes in the Canada Gazette, Part I proposals for new regulations or proposed amendments to existing Regulations.
