Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) today issued a first-quarter (April 1 to June 30, 2019) non-tax gaming revenue payment of $384,885 to the City of Sault Ste. Marie for hosting Gateway Casinos – Sault Ste. Marie.
Since May 1999, Sault Ste. Marie has received more than $30 million in non-tax gaming revenue.
“OLG has established tremendous partnerships with host municipalities and the revenue generated at these local gaming sites is helping to improve the quality of life for individuals and families right across the province,” said Ross Romano, MPP for Sault Ste. Marie.
“These funds are invested in plenty of important projects, including much needed investment in local infrastructure, community programs and services, roads and public transit,” Romano said.
These payments are made under an equitable formula in the Municipality Contribution Agreement that determines the funds municipalities receive for hosting a gaming facility and are based on a graduated scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.
