President and CEO of the Canadian Gaming Association (CGA), Paul Burns, became the first ever Canadian to be inducted into the Sports Betting Hall of Fame during a ceremony held on July 13th in New Jersey.

Back in 2005, Burns played a key role in establishing the CGA, a national trade association representing leading operators and suppliers in Canada’s gaming, sports betting, esports and lottery industries. He was appointed President and CEO in 2018 and has been responsible for the development of industry-wide research and programs, including a comprehensive study on the economic impact of gaming in Canada and the expansion of the Canadian Gaming Summit conference.

“It has been a wonderful experience for me to be able to work with all of the terrific people in the industry,” Burns said. “I have never had a day I didn’t want to go work because it has been awesome, and a lot of fun. You are always learning and meeting new people. The innovation, the growth, the changes, it has been fantastic. I have been blessed and privileged to do this”.
