There are four licensing models for establishing online casinos in Kahnawake:

  • Interactive Gaming Licenses: only one license should be issued to one hosting registered in the jurisdiction;
  • Client Provider Authorization (СРА) for the authorized client provider: there is no limit on the number of CPA’s issued; the holder of a valid CPA may establish any type of interactive gaming and betting;
  • Inter-Jurisdictional Authorization (secondary license) issued to an entity that holds a valid interactive gaming license issued by another jurisdiction (the “primary jurisdiction”) and that wants to locate some or all of its equipment and personnel within the territory of Kahnawake;
