Each year, OLG proudly sponsors many local festivals and events across the Province that help to bring communities together. Throughout the pandemic, we’ve continued to support many of events that were able to transition their programming to online formats.
Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) and its employees are proud supporters of the Team Canada athletes who participated in the Tokyo Summer Olympics and Paralympics this summer. We were particularly excited to watch all the athletes from Ontario who competed for the podium, especially those who had benefitted from the Quest for Gold Program.
OLG kicked off 2021 with an exciting new retail lottery product – INSTANT PLINKO® - a game that gives top prize winners the opportunity to live their ‘THE PRICE IS RIGHT’ dreams and experience the thrill of dropping a chip on a real PLINKO Board at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to win up to $500,000.
When the world was changing fast and furiously in March 2020, the Ontario government was investigating every available avenue to communicate important public health information.
On May 15, 1975, the very first Wintario draw was held. The funds from that lottery went to important projects in cities and towns across the province.
OLG's Corporate Social Responsibility Report serves as a measure of OLG's efforts in a number of areas of social responsibility including: Responsible Gambling and efforts to educate players and address problem gambling; earning and keeping customers' trust; supporting employees' engagement in communities; strengthening communities; and, reducing OLG’s impact on the environment. Our report has transitioned to a fully digital report that will be regularly updated to communicate key social responsibility developments as they occur.
