Canadian Symposium to Develop Unified Approach to the Threat of Competition Manipulation
Ottawa – April 27, 2023 – The Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES) and McLaren Global Sport Solutions (MGSS), with support from the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC), are hosting a symposium with an intensive program that explores the threat of competition manipulation and gambling to Canadian sport. The goal of the 2023 Symposium on Competition Manipulation and Gambling in Sport is to develop a common way forward that will benefit sport and the gaming industry, as well as a comprehensive national program for all national and multi-sport organizations to adopt.
