Fintech Provider Nuvei Joins Canadian Gaming Association
March 31, 2021
Global payment technology provider Nuvei Corporation has joined the Canadian Gaming Association.
A Nuvei release says the partnership with the CGA will expand the company’s growth as a leader of international iGaming payment technology and thought leadership and aims to ensure that the association can meet the innovation requirements necessary to streamline and modernize regulated digital gaming payments across Canada.
Nuvei has vast experience in the industry globally and is established as a leading iGaming payment solution provider, helping operators maximize conversions, improve acceptance rates, and enhance security, all through a single proprietary platform. The release says that, in addition to advocating for the industry, its wealth of knowledge in the ever-changing regulatory and compliance landscape will benefit all of Canada’s gaming industry stakeholders.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the CGA to provide our support, advocacy, and expertise as the Canadian iGaming industry continues to evolve,” said Philip Fayer, Nuvei’s chairman and CEO. “We look forward to collaborating with the CGA and enabling it to meet its goals of advancing the scope of gaming in Canada, while embracing best practices and payment technology.”
“The CGA is excited to welcome Nuvei to the family,” said Paul Burns, CGA president and CEO. “Nuvei encourages innovation in both payments and policy, and the CGA is thrilled to be partnering with them. By collaborating with payment technology leaders like Nuvei, we can increase access to iGaming across the country and bring more awareness to the positive economic impacts of the gaming industry.”
Nuvei is now a member of both the CGA and the American Gaming Association after it joined the AGA earlier in 2021. That deal saw Neil Erlick, the group’s chief corporate development officer, named to the AGA's board of directors.
