Central Huron receives quarterly casino hosting payment

The Municipality of Central Huron has received $132,469 for hosting Gateway Casinos in Clinton. Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation issued the second quarter non-tax gaming revenue payment this week for the quarter between July and September.

“Our government is pleased that land-based casinos have reopened safely and are contributing to our provincial economy again,” said Lisa Thompson, Member of Provincial Parliament for Huron-Bruce. “Host communities are once again benefiting from local employment and the financial proceeds that support vital services through Municipality Contribution Agreements.”

Under the province’s reopening framework, with rigorous public health and workplace safety measures in place, gaming sites were able to resume operations beginning on July 16, 2021. Casino re-opening dates were determined by each service provider in consultation with OLG, depending on their readiness and ability to operate under the mandatory restrictions. All gaming sites in Ontario resumed operations by August 16, 2021.

Life to date, host municipalities have received more than $1.76 billion in non-tax gaming revenue.
