Helpline History

Since 1987, the Council Helpline has been ready to take your call 24-hours a day, 7-days a week. We’re here to listen, to offer information and to provide referrals for self-help, treatment providers and other community resources to people experiencing problems with gambling. 

In early 2014, the Council launched a live, online chat service. The same Helpline Specialists, who you can reach by phone, are also available to chat online with you 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.

To receive information about gambling disorder and next steps towards recovery via mail, click here. Please note that we can only send information to someone who has requested it themselves, we cannot mail information to another individual on your behalf. If you would prefer the mailing to be confidential, click the “Confidential” box, and to receive information via email enter your email address and include in a note in the bottom box that you prefer an email.

“From the beginning, I felt I was in a knowledgeable, nurturing, caring and non-judgmental environment. I felt welcomed and that I was among people who encouraged me to be open and honest about my gambling addiction. The retreat was very beneficial for me, I am in recovery and after this weekend I can honestly say that I will stay this way.”
