TORONTO, Oct. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - The Ontario Lottery and Gaming
Corporation (OLG) will continue to work with the Ontario government and
the horse racing sector to integrate horse racing into the provincial
We appreciate the Horse Racing Industry Transition Panel's leadership on
the development of the five-year plan that will help ensure a vibrant
and sustainable horse racing sector in Ontario. OLG will commit the
necessary resources to implement and execute the government's plan.
OLG's modernization will be fully implemented in 2017-18. A modern OLG
will help create thousands of jobs and drive more than $3 billion in
capital investments across Ontario. It will also enable OLG to generate
additional revenue to help fund provincial priorities such as hospitals
and municipal infrastructure.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for province-wide lottery games
and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $38 billion
to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG's annual payments to the
Province have helped support health care; education, research,
prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the
QUEST FOR GOLD program; and local and provincial charities.
