Abstract: This Provincial Health Officer’s annual report examines gambling in BC using a comprehensive public health approach. A public health approach considers preventive interventions, health promotion, health protection, and assessment and surveillance, and addresses issues related to quality of life for all members of the community. In applying such an approach, this report acknowledges and incorporates the health, social, and economic dimensions of gambling. It reviews the history of gambling in Canada and BC, describes current gambling policies and programs in BC, and examines evidence-based strategies to minimize the negative effects of gambling while optimizing the potential benefits.
