I have always been told by the casinos in Canada that it is 19, because I was interested in playing up there too since im not 21.

yes this is true, but im pretty sure legal drinking age in MTL is 18 though, so i figured gambling age is the same like in EU

21 years old are qualified to any poker tournaments. But other jurisdictions say that it is up to the casino operator or online casino/poker to set the limits.

Take California, for example. The State Penal Code makes it a crime to allow anyone under 18 to "play at a game of chance," in "any house used in whole, or in part, as a saloon or drinking place." But, tribal casinos almost always limited poker to 21-year-olds, because the statetribal compacts allows 18-year-olds to play only when no booze is available. The state's licensed cardrooms also won't seat anyone under 21. The State Legislature recently enacted a law allowing charities to run poker tournaments; again, the minimum age was set at 21.

^ in most cases, the post above is very true to what's happening.

but others allow even just 18-year old players.

It always vary on casino-to-casino, some 18, 19 and 21. But as long as you are above 18. You are allowed to play at any casino.

The legal age to gamble varies throughout the provinces. For example, the required age to gamble in a casino is 18 in Quebec, while it is 19 in Ontario. For lottery and scratch-tickets, the standard legal age is 18.
