OTTAWA – The Canadian sports betting market furthers its expansion as the Canadian Gaming Association appoints four new members to its board, and PointsBet Canada signs two more curling partnerships.

Four New Board Members

According to the Canadian Gaming Association, (CGA) the institution has recently appointed four new members to its own board of directors. This appointment occurred at the CGA’s annual general meeting on November 10.

The Four New Board Members:

  • Scott Burton, CEO of FansUnite Entertainment Inc.
  • Neil Erlick, Chief Corporate Development Officer at Nuvei
  • Jeffrey Haas, SVP International Strategy at DraftKings Inc.
  • Chuck Keeling, EVP Stakeholder Relations and Responsible Gaming of Great Canadian Gaming Corporation

“I am pleased to welcome Scott, Neil, Jeffrey and Chuck to the CGA Board of Directors and believe their experience will help the Association implement its operational strategy as we move out of COVID,” said Paul Burns, President and CEO of the CGA. “These seasoned professionals have strong track records as trusted leaders in the gaming industry, and they will provide invaluable insight as we look to launch a regulated iGaming market in Ontario and single-event sports betting across Canada.”

This expansion of the CGA is reflective of the Canadian gaming market overall, as the entire industry grows, so will the institutions surrounding it.

PointsBet Partnership

Another form of growth seen in the Canadian gaming market comes in the form of partnerships between gaming company PointsBet, and curling teams Kerri Einarson and Kevin Koe.

PointsBet is one of the leading legal sports betting brands in the country, making the partnership between the company and the two curling teams a great match.

These developments further exemplify the growth of Canada’s sports betting industry, as interest in the hobby also grows among Canadian citizens.
