The Kahnawake Gaming Commission, located in Mohawk Territory near Montreal, announced the launch of its new compliance program that will ensure best industry practices of fairness and player protection among its fifty five licensed gambling operators.

The KGC said that its Continuous Compliance Program would improve the reputation and standards of the jurisdiction through a number of crucial elements.

Licensees would be required to comply fully with the Commission's regulations that govern anti money laundering, player protection, prizes, responsible gaming and so forth.

The licensees would need to undergo annual assessment to see that they indeed comply with these regulations.

In addition, annual assessment would also be undertaken  to ensure that compliance with key regulatory objectives are met.

Finally, licensees would have their live gaming data undergo analysis on an ongoing basis to ensure that all authorized games are random and fair.

As such, the KGC commissioned the eCommerce Online Gaming Regulation and Assurance (eCOGRA) group to act as third party Approved Agent and oversee the compliance of the licensees to the new program.

Dean Montour, chairman of the KGC said: "eCOGRA is a non profit standards and player protection company that has a substantial staff of professionally qualified and industry experienced chartered accountants who have completed hundreds of compliance inspections over the past six years."

"The company," continued Montour, "which is itself reviewed annually by KPMG, has the resources to assess compliance and conduct monitoring programs to ensure game fairness and adherence to key KGC objectives, and is eminently suited to the task."
