OLG’s Modernization Plan

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), a Provincial Crown Corporation reporting to the Minister of Finance, is responsible for the Province’s lotteries, casinos and slot facilities.

In July 2010, the Government of Ontario directed the OLG to modernize charitable and commercial gaming in Ontario, including a comprehensive review of land-based gaming facilities.

As part of modernization, the OLG launched a procurement process in 2013 to find a single private sector operator for the GTA Gaming Bundle, which includes Woodbine Racetrack.

OLG Gaming Modernization in Toronto

The gaming facility at Woodbine Racetrack has approximately 3,000 electronic games, but no live-dealer tables. Learn more about the existing facility and its contribution to Toronto.

To expand gaming at Woodbine Racetrack, the Province of Ontario, through Ontario Regulation 81/12, requires a resolution of support from City Council.
