Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has made its second quarter (July 1 – September 30) payment totaling $725,487 to the City of Thunder Bay for hosting Gateway Casinos Thunder Bay.

During OLG’s current fiscal year (April 1, 2023, to March 31, 2024), Thunder Bay has received $1,278,400.

“OLG continues to be a proud partner in hosting gaming communities,” said Peter Bethlenfalvy, Minister of Finance.  “Municipality Contribution Agreement payments help these municipalities fund priorities such as community infrastructure, parks and recreation, and local health care facilities, benefiting families and local residents.”

100 per cent of OLG’s profits are reinvested back into the province.

Since the gaming site opened in August 2000, Thunder Bay has received $53,971,309.
