Registration Now Open for the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport

Ottawa – February 21, 2023 – Registration is open for the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport in Toronto, Ontario, May 30-31, 2023. The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and McLaren Global Sport Solutions Inc. (MGSS), with support from the Canadian Olympic Committee, are proud to present a program of world-class speakers and experts in sport integrity, including internationally recognized expert in sports law and arbitration, Professor Richard McLaren, O.C.

Symposium delegates will examine real-life case studies to learn about the risks to sport integrity associated with sport betting and match fixing, and best practices to mitigate these risks. The event will take a collective approach to developing a common way forward that benefits sport and the gaming industry.

In 2019, the CCES and MGSS hosted the first-ever Canadian symposium to address the issues of competition manipulation and gambling in sport, which resulted in five recommendations to mitigate the potential for competition manipulation in Canada. Legislation to legalize single-sport betting in Canada was passed in August 2021, which initiated major changes to the domestic sport gambling landscape and renewed the urgency to identify the current threats to sport integrity and safe sport, and how to alleviate their impact.

Register by February 28 to secure your spot with the discounted registration fee. Special rates are available for national and multi-sport organizations, and athletes.
