Licensing

Racetracks

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) licenses all Racetracks that are operating in Ontario and racing an extended meet of seven (7) days or more race dates. Racetracks that operate less than seven (7) days are considered fairs (non-extended meets) and licensed thorough a modified process.

To operate a Racetrack in Ontario, a Racetrack Association must hold a current licence with the AGCO for the given year. Applications for new and annual renewal of racetrack licences are made to the Registrar. 

To conduct live racing, a Racetrack Association must also have an approved schedule of race dates for both live and simulcast product.

Fairs

The document below outlines the process involved in applying for a licence to operate horse racing where the number of days per year is less than seven (7). For the most part this includes fair racing, where racing is conducted as part of an agricultural society’s annual fair.
