Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

Yes, you will need a license to creating a gambling website.

The Criminal Code of Canada gambling is illegal. That same Code creates exceptions to this general rule, and it is under these exceptions that provincially licensed gambling occurs.

As a result, you will need to register any casino (including an online casino) with the province where it will be operating from.
