Welcome to my site, SportsBettingCanadian.ca! As you have probably guessed I’m a Canadian who is a huge sports fan and an avid sports bettor. After betting on sports for many years I noticed that there really wasn’t an online authority on sports betting for Canadians. Having a solid background in the betting industry and experience building other sports betting websites, I decided to take it upon myself to create the ultimate sports betting information site for Canadian bettors!
Here at Sports Betting Canadian all of the information is written by me and tailored towards Canadian sports bettors. I’ve included a section dedicated to the various provinces and their government run sports lotteries, a betting guide with articles for both beginner and advanced bettors, information about betting on the most popular Canadian sports, a complete section on horse race betting in Canada and a thorough guide to all of the deposit options available to Canadians.

Beach volleyball is always one of my favourite sports to watch during the Summer Olympic Games....
Top Sportsbooks for Canadians
Almost every sports betting site online accepts Canadian bettors, which leaves quite a choice for Canadian sports bettors. Here at Sports Betting Canadian I only wanted to promote the very best online betting sites, so I waded through all of the different information and found what I feel are far and away the best 3 sportsbooks for Canadian bettors. These betting sites are each committed to growing their brand in the Canadian market and offering a great product to Canadians for years to come. Each of the sportsbooks tailor their sportsbooks and banking options to Canadian residents and even offer exclusive bonuses and promos to Canadian bettors. The sportsbooks are all safe, secure, trusted and respected in the industry with great customer service teams that make sure you enjoy your online betting experience.

Sports Betting by Province
You will notice that a large section of the website is dedicated to sports betting options offered by the various Provincial lottery corporations in Canada. These provincially run sports betting “lotteries” generally have far worse odds than the popular Canadian facing online betting sites, and I felt it was my responsibility to provide information on each of the various province-run sports betting options and compare them with the top online betting sites for Canadians.
You can check out this very popular section of the site by clicking here. In that section I’ve broken down Canadian sports betting by province, provincial lottery corporation and the sports betting option provided by each provincial government.
Sports Betting in 2021
2020 was a very strange year with the global pandemic affecting the sports world in a major way. Several events such as the Olympics and Euro 2020 were postponed, while others were cancelled. Those events that were pushed to this year may have been 2020’s loss, but they set up a great 2021 for sports betting.
This year the major sports leagues have a better understanding of how to deal with the pandemic, so I expect we will have a closer to normal year from a sports and betting perspective. Conor McGregor is fighting in January, and he plans to stay active this year, which could result in a big year for UFC betting. Boxing betting is also setting up for an interesting year with celebrity/legend fights likely taking center stage again after the success of the Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. event last November. Floyd Mayweather will be back in action vs Logan Paul in February, and the Tyson Fury vs Anthony Joshua fight is also expected to take place in 2021.
In addition to the unique UFC, boxing, Euro 2021 and Olympics events, the regular big betting events of the year should be back to their normal time slots this year. The Super Bowl will take place in February, the Kentucky Derby in May, and the NBA and NHL playoffs will finish up earlier in the summer this year, which should get the normal sports schedule back on track. The NCAA also announced that the March Madness college basketball tournament will happen this year in a bubble in Indianapolis, so one of the biggest betting events of the year will be back after being cancelled in 2020.
Overall, it should be a great year for betting on sports. The majority of sporting events will be back and taking place close to their traditional times. Add in the fact that some of the bigger events from last year were postponed to 2021 and this could be a monster year for sports betting, so long as the global pandemic is kept under control.
I also want to note that it’s easy to get carried away when betting on sports and some people inevitably bet more than they can afford. I want to stress that you should always gamble responsibly and only bet with an amount you are willing to lose (anything can happen in sports). If you feel that gambling is affecting your life in a negative way don’t hesitate to get help.

I launched SportsBettingCanadian.ca in 2014 because, as a passionate Canadian sports bettor, I saw a need for an accurate and thorough information site focusing solely on sports betting in Canada. Now in 2021, I feel that we have the most complete and authoritative information site online for Canadians to get their sports betting questions answered.
All of the information pages here at SportsBettingCanadian.ca are written by me, as well as the majority of articles, but I’ve also added a couple experts to help me with articles on sports that I don’t follow quite as closely. For a more in depth bio or to shoot me a message check out my About Me page.
