Online Poker From Canada

Above you'll find the best online poker sites accepting Canadian players that also support payment methods open to Canadian's. Our Canadian poker site guide includes a summary for each poker room in what they have to offer along with bonuses we've arranged exclusively for our players. One of the biggest misconceptions about online poker in Canada is that it's illegal.  If you think the US poker laws are fuzzy, try the Canadian system. While the major media outlets propel gambling as some sort of illegal activity within the Canadian borders, it's nothing more than a fallacy. Online poker in Canada is not illegal. Canadian residents can choose to play from the comfort of their own homes with real money or play money if they like.

What is illegal is the advertising of online gambling within the media circle if the company is based in Canada. While you can deposit and play at pretty much any poker site you choose, the Canadian media is not allowed to advertise real money gambling sites. Yes, the Canadian system is a bit grey however; the tides appear to be turning. In fact, as of 2010 many of the provinces including Quebec and Vancouver are undergoing plans to release their own online casinos. They also want piece of the action, and have legally approved the expansion of the lottery corporations into the Canadian market online. This is great news for Canadians and should help with the number of processing companies who will openly accept poker deposits from Canadian players.

You can use a credit card to deposit online, although the transaction could be rejected, which is in part due to banking regulations and gambling transactions. If your credit card deposit is declined, you can opt for an ewallet account. Most poker sites for Canadians do accept plenty of options when it comes to funding your online account, including eChecks, Western Union and MoneyBookers among others. You shouldn't run into to many problems when it comes to deposits or withdrawals from any of the Canadian poker sites listed above.
