As Dr. Karin Schnarr prepares to take the helm of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO), the province’s gaming industry stands at a pivotal juncture.

With the online market flourishing beyond expectations and new leadership changes within iGaming Ontario as well, Schnarr’s diverse background in academia, public service, and private sector consulting positions her as a uniquely qualified leader for this dynamic environment.

As she steps into the role, succeeding Tom Mungham—a figure who has left an indelible mark on the organization—the industry will be watching closely to see how she navigates the challenges and opportunities ahead.

With more than $14 billion CAD in wagers recorded in Q2 2023 alone, the stakes are high, but so are the expectations for Schnarr’s tenure. As AGCO and its subsidiary iGaming Ontario undergo these leadership transitions, the focus will undoubtedly be on sustaining growth while ensuring consumer protection and regulatory integrity.
