Raising the Bar on RG Training: From Awareness to Recognition and Response

Co-Presented with Mr. Peter Filice.

This session will explore the utility of the "RG Red Flag Guidelines", which are being rolled out across Ontario in 2014/15 as a component of enhanced RG training programs.

The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Ontario Lottery and Gaming has been collaborating to provide gaming employee responsible gambling training.
