The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation has issued a fourth quarter non-tax gaming revenue payment of $1,658,011 to the City of Windsor for hosting Caesars Windsor.  This covers from January 1st to March 31st, 2020.

The casino has been closed since March 16th, 2020. The casino closures remain in effect until it is safe to resume operations.

“During these unprecedented times, we all feel a closer connection to our local communities. Often the biggest impacts are the result of actions we take at the local level to help our neighbors,” said Rod Phillips, Minister of Finance. “These fourth-quarter payments come at a vital time as our partners at all levels of government work together to support people and employers during the COVID-19 pandemic.”

In the 2019-2020 fiscal year, the City of Windsor received a total of $10,301,482.

Life to date, Windsor has received more than $67 million in non-tax gaming revenue.
