PICKERING, ON, Aug. 8, 2017 /CNW/ - The City of Pickering is very pleased that Ontario Lottery Gaming Corporation (OLG) has selected Ontario Gaming GTA LP (OGGLP) as the service provider for the GTA Gaming Bundle.
OGGLP is a world class consortium comprised of Great Canadian Gaming, Brookfield Business Partners, and Clairvest Group. Together, they boast a wealth of global experience and leadership with respect to infrastructure development, gaming, and entertainment & hospitality development.
Equally as important, the partners have demonstrated a strong and genuine commitment to the community through charitable grants, volunteering, and social responsibility efforts. Mayor Dave Ryan believes that OGGLP is truly the best fit for Pickering, Ajax, and Durham Region.
"I applaud the Government of Ontario, through OLG, for taking a major step forward in its modernization efforts by selecting OGGLP as the new service provider," said Mayor Dave Ryan. "While OGGLP has not yet announced its final site selection, we look forward to participating in meaningful discussions on Durham Live's multi-billion dollar value proposition. With respect to augmenting gaming revenues, economic development, and significant job creation, Durham Live represents an unparalleled opportunity for Durham Region, the Province of Ontario, and OGGLP."
