Ryan Wilson - Who Am I?

Welcome to CasinoCanadaPro! I’m proud to introduce myself and my website. Let’s get to know each other a little, shall we? My name is Ryan Wilson and I was born in 1976 in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador. Online casinos have been my number one hobby since I started frequenting them in 2005. I’m very glad to finally launch this site that I’ve been dreaming about for years to put that expertise to work in helping other Canadians navigate this industry.
In 1988, my family relocated to Toronto, Ontario. This has made me very fortunate to grow up nurtured by that Newfoundland sense of community while also affording me the opportunities that come with living in the big smoke. We started making regular visits to Niagara Falls and for a small town kid, that place seemed like another planet. I couldn’t wait to be old enough to see everything there, including the brightly lit and manically loud casinos. 
By the time I was old enough to go, I had also developed a keen interest in the math of statistics and probability, so I knew this was the world I wanted to work in. So I attended university and earned my undergrad in software engineering, minoring in statistics. After I graduated in 1998, I started working as a software developer and eventually transitioned into a freelance career with it in 2008. I’ve had opportunities to work as a consultant with different iGaming companies from around the world and hone my knowledge of the industry. 
My life has been fortunate in that my career has allowed me to have an active role in raising my two kids and being present in their lives everyday. As the online gambling trend took off, I couldn’t help but notice how so many other parents in our social circle were misinformed about the industry, sometimes to their own detriment when they played. At worst, some were taken advantage of by unethical practices.
It became clear to me that a personal, reliable, fact based resource on navigating the world of online casinos was a necessity as more people joined the hobby. Unfortunately, there didn’t seem to be such a resource specifically for Canadians and representing their interest. I’m proud to say that this website was created to fill that gap and help Canadians access accurate information to help them play responsibly and safely while relying on the knowledge and experience I’ve built up over the years.
CasinoCanadaPro is the culmination of years of hard work, a deeply ingrained love for online casinos and a distaste for the bad apples that ruin the fun for everyone. So welcome, it’s great to meet you! I can’t wait to begin our shared adventure.
