The City of Windsor received a third-quarter payment of $1,838,165 from the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation for hosting Caesars Windsor. To date, Windsor has received more than $15.9 million in non-tax gaming revenue.
“Municipalities are able to improve local programs and infrastructure with revenues from OLG gaming sites,” said Charles Sousa, Minister of Finance. “In turn, revenues to the province support continued investment in important Ontario public services like health care and education.”
These payments are made under an equitable formula in the Municipality Contribution Agreement that determines the fee municipalities receive for hosting an OLG gaming facility and are based on an escalating scale of gaming revenue that is consistent across all sites in Ontario.
