Abstract: The purpose of this study was to assess Asian Canadian communities leaders' perceptions on: the nature of gambling and the problems associated with this activity, and how to effectively offer prevention and rehabilitation services within these communities. Sixty-two community leaders completed the Key Informants Survey in person or by telephone. Results indicated that problem gambling in these communities might result in financial, family/relationship, and/or employment related issues. Further, it was suggested that many people in these communities hesitate to use the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba's (AFM) services because they do not feel that the AFM fully understands the cultural complexity of gambling related problems in their communities.
