The Canadian Consortium for Gambling Research (CCGR) is a group of gambling research, regulatory, treatment and industry organizations from across Canada, each with a mandate or role related to gambling research. For more than a decade, CCGR members have pooled resources to address shared research priorities.
This collaboration has led to the successful development of the Canadian Problem Gambling Index (CPGI), the Canadian Adolescent Gambling Inventory and the Socio-Economic Impact of Gambling Framework, all of which have shaped the gambling research landscape in Canada. Recently, the CCGR has funded a series of knowledge translation workshops for gambling researchers and the development of a validated instrument to measure gambling participation.
Members are committed to an unbiased scientific research process that meets academic standards for ethics, validity, reliability, transparency, accountability and peer review. The CCGR charter includes more details about the group's principles and operations.
