A highly unique role – one of only three in the province of BC!
Gaming revenue currently generates over $2.5 billion annually for the Province. It’s a rapidly evolving and specialized industry that relies on constant oversight to maintain its viability and integrity. Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) regulates all gaming in British Columbia and ensures the integrity of companies, people and gaming supplies (equipment) involved in the gaming industry. This includes regulatory oversight of the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC) (which conducts and manages lotteries, casinos, community gaming centres and commercial bingo halls), BC’s horseracing industry, and licensed gaming events. The branch also manages responsible and problem gambling programs and distributes gaming funds to community organizations and other recipients.

Your degree in computer science, computer/electrical engineering, electronics, information system/technology, gaming technology or a similar field has given you a solid grounding for the complex and critical role, especially when augmented with at least three years’ experience conducting technical inspections and investigations (preferably in a law enforcement or regulatory environment). Alternative, equivalent combinations or experience and education will also be considered.
At ease dealing with the public, and working with highly confidential and personally sensitive information, you are equally familiar with gaming legislation, policy and regulations. With your years of technical experience and deep interest in the latest trends affecting electronics and IT, you’ll be called on to conduct independent, confidential inspections and investigations on all types of gaming equipment and supplies. You’ll provide recommendations for the maintenance and updating of the province’s technical standards and analysis of new gaming technologies and lottery schemes prior to being introduced in the Province. As the regulatory arm for gaming technology, it will also fall to you to ensure that corrective measures are applied in cases of system malfunctions or fraudulent activity.
