The Ontario Racing Commission licenses all racetracks in Ontario, which operate an extended meet of 7 days or more. Racetracks operating less than seven (7) days are considered fairs and are not required to be licensed by the ORC.

To be able to operate a racetrack in Ontario, a racetrack operator must hold a current licence with the Ontario Racing Commission for any given year. Applications for licence are made to the Executive Director. Once approved, a licence must be renewed on an annual basis.

To conduct live racing, a racetrack must also have an approved schedule of race dates for both live and simulcast product.
