Dear community forum members,

Today we announce the closure of our community forum effective April 30, 2019. This difficult decision was made to focus more of our efforts on supporting addiction and mental health service providers through training, professional development and knowledge exchange in gambling, gaming and technology use.

Since 2013, the Gambling, Gaming and Technology Use team (formerly the Problem Gambling Institute of Ontario) has run this community forum to connect people experiencing gambling problems and provide them with resources for support. Although the community forum will no longer be available, we direct you to the following sources for support in Ontario and beyond:
