Casino or bingo facilities
Vancouver is home to a variety of gaming facilities, including: one casino, one horse racing track (Hastings Park), one commercial bingo hall, and over 400 lottery outlets.
The City plays a significant role in developing policy, defining land use and regulatory matters related to the gambling industry.
Because of the social and legal consequences of gambling, casinos and bingo halls in Vancouver have additional requirements beyond the licensing requirements from the City. There are provincial requirements as well as federal criminal code regulations relating to gaming and betting.
See the list below for more information about the specific regulations, laws, and bylaws that apply to gambling in Vancouver.
