We encourage partners to promote the Lower-Risk Gambling Guidelines (LRGG) using your own materials. If you wish to do so, follow the branding guidelines provided below or download the document.
When developing your own materials to promote the LRGGs, you must include the following elements in each promotional piece you develop.
Lower-Risk Gambling Guidelines Logo
The LRGG logo will be included on all promotional materials. You will receive a copy of the logo during the approval process.
The colours used on your LRGG material should be either the branding colours of your respective organization or the branding colours of the LRGGs. If you wish to use the branding colours of the LRGGs, please use the following colours:
Dark Blue: HEX #03334D
c=100 m=76 y=45 k=41
Green: Pantone HEX #338741
c=81 m=24 y=100 k=10
Steel/Gray Blue: HEX #2F7688
c=82% m=42% y=37% k=8%
Whenever possible, all promotional material should include all three of the guidelines:
Guideline 1: Gamble no more than 1% of household income before tax per month.
Guideline 2: Gamble no more than 4 days per month.
Guideline 3: Avoid regularly gambling at more than 2 types of games.
For promotional materials where space is limited, you may promote a single guideline of your choice, under the provision that you also include the appropriate statement from the Web Address section below.
The purpose of the LRGGs is not to stigmatize those who choose to gamble, but to help reduce their experience of the harms of gambling. All imagery used to promote the LRGGs must present gambling in a neutral light.

All promotional materials must include the web address of the LRGG website so that audiences know where to go to get additional information on the LRGGs.
If your promotional material includes all three guidelines, provide the following web address: www.gamblingguidelines.ca .
If your promotional material includes one of the three guidelines, include the following statement:
