The Malta Gaming Authority has entered into a new Memorandum of Understanding with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario to bolster their relationship and collaboration regarding gambling regulation.

Both regulators share the same objectives and values regarding the gaming sector, including “protecting the public interest, safeguarding of vulnerable individuals from gambling harm and consumer protection”.

The MGA stated that the new MoU aims to strengthen the collaboration between the two regulators, helping to enable the sharing of vital information and best practices, as well as “mutual operational assistance concerning gaming operators” and create a safer and more secure gaming environment in both jurisdictions.

“Our ongoing collaboration with AGCO has yielded tangible results in the past, and through this MoU, we are committed to further bolstering our inter-jurisdictional relationship,” commented Charles Mizzi, CEO of the MGA.

“Our focus remains on fostering the exchange of information, with the overarching goal of improving our regulatory practices and addressing mutual challenges effectively.”

Earlier this year, the MGA renewed its MoU with the Alderney Gambling Control Commission.
