Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) made its second quarter payment, totaling $1,391,238 to the City of Brantford for hosting Elements Casino Brantford.
So far, during OLG’s fiscal year (April 1, 2023 to March 31, 2024), Brantford has received $2,771,142. Since the gaming site opened in November 1999, Brantford has received $99,050,671.
These payments to host communities are based on a formula consistently applied across all gaming sites in Ontario using a graduated scale of gaming revenue at the hosted site.
“OLG continues to be a proud partner in hosting gaming communities,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance. “Municipality Contribution Agreement payments help these municipalities fund priorities such as community infrastructure, parks and recreation and local health care facilities, benefiting families and local residents.”
OLG is proud to share proceeds of casino gaming with local communities, contributing to economic recovery, infrastructure development and job creation. Payments to host communities are part of OLG’s commitment to Ontario – 100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested in the province.
Over the past eight years, casino service providers have invested more than $2 billion in private sector capital across the province. Since 2017, these investments have led to the development and opening of seven new casinos, one planned development and additional gaming expansions and non-gaming amenities.
Since 1994, host communities have received more than $2 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.
