Three times more Canadian teenagers are gambling online than previously thought, according research from the University of Waterloo and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
Researchers found close to 10 per cent of adolescents—or an estimated 58,000 teenagers— had gambled online in the past three months. Earlier reports suggested the rate was closer to 3 per cent.
