I was recently interviewed by Investment Executive on the issue of problem gambling. It has certainly become a larger problem in Canada in recent years and we at Credit Canada are finding the occurrence of problem gambling on the rise. It can wreak havoc on an individual’s home life, work life and health . As such it is important to recognize the signs of problem gambling and take action as soon as possible. If you know someone who may be suffering from this disease let them know you are there to support them. Make sure you offer them information on where they can get professional help. They may not take you up on the offer but they will know the information is available when they are ready to seek help.
