Presently, the Commission issues four types of licenses under its Regulations concerning Interactive Gaming (amended April 17, 2013):
- Interactive Gaming Licence (“IGL”): Issued to an approved hosting facility in Kahnawake. Only one IGL may only be issued at any given time. Since 1999, Mohawk Internet Technologies has held the sole IGL issued by the Commission.
- Client Provider Authorisation (“CPA”): Issued to approved entities that want to provide interactive gaming services from the hosting facility in Kahnawake. The holder of a valid CPA is called an Authorised Client Provider (“ACP”). There is no limit on the number of CPA’s that may be issued by the Commission. An ACP must be hosted at the hosting facility that holds the IGL and is entitled of offer any type of interactive gaming: eg. casino, poker and/or sportsbook.
- Secondary Client Provider Authorisation (“Secondary CPA”): Issued to approved entities that want to provide interactive gaming services from the hosting facility in Kahnawake but whose primary operations are located in another jurisdiction recognized by the Commission. The holder of a Secondary CPA is required to comply with all requirements of the Regulations except the requirement to post the KGC logo on its site.
- Key Person Licence (“KPL”): Issued to at least one person who performs a managerial function for the entity that holds a CPA. The Commission considers the information contained in KPL’s to be confidential.
