OLG and the local gaming site are proud to be a part of the community. The gaming site not only offers entertainment, but it also creates jobs and stimulates the area economy through purchases of goods and services. In addition, OLG supports community festivals and events though its sponsorship program, and makes payments, based on slot machine and table game revenue, where applicable, to the municipality for hosting the gaming facility. This money is used at the discretion of the municipality.
Since 1975, Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) has provided nearly $42 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
