PointsBet Canada opens Canadian Headquarters

TORONTO, Dec. 1, 2022 /CNW/ -- Located in downtown Toronto, just steps away from the centre of the Canadian entertainment industry, PointsBet Canada has officially opened their new headquarters to anchor their Canadian operations. The office will serve as an innovation hub, maintaining a focus on product development and technology recruitment moving forward.

"Our mission since the very beginning has been to build a Canadian sportsbook, with Canadian employees, for the Canadian market," said Scott Vanderwel, Chief Executive Officer of PointsBet Canada. "We believe that Ontario has the talent and workforce that can help us be at the forefront of iGaming in Canada."

The company prides itself on offering unmatched speed and ease of use across every customer touchpoint, as well as the deepest slate of pre-game and in-play betting options in the world, thanks to owning and controlling its technology.

PointsBet Canada has also made a sincere commitment to the Canadian market with partnerships deeply rooted in Canadian sport, including Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, the Ottawa REDBLACKS, NHL Alumni Association, Curling Canada, and more.

"I congratulate PointsBet on the opening of their new Canadian headquarters and welcome them to Ontario.  This investment supports the growth of Ontario's technology and iGaming ecosystems," says Trevor Dauphinee, CEO of Invest Ontario. "Ontario's strength as an economic powerhouse backed by a highly-skilled workforce is a competitive advantage that industry leaders like PointsBet recognize."
