More About OLG Modernization

On March 12, 2012, OLG delivered a report entitled Modernizing Lottery and Gaming in Ontario: Strategic Business Review, to the Minister of Finance outlining a proposal to modernize lottery and gaming in Ontario.

Download the full report (PDF)

To achieve this, OLG is focusing on three priorities:

  • become more customer-focused
  • securing qualified service providers for the day-to-day operation of lottery and gaming
  • renewing OLG’s role in the conduct, management and oversight of lottery and gaming

When OLG’s modernization (including initiatives already underway) is fully implemented, OLG will increase its contribution to the province by continuing to create jobs and triggering private investment across Ontario.

OLG is conducting a competitive procurement process within the guidelines/regulations mandated by the Government of Ontario for these goods/services.


As we move through the process we will update this website with current information. Any questions regarding this procurement process must be directed to pmproject@olg.ca.
