Joint Statement AGCO/OLG
Today the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) announced that it will not enforce the Red Tape Reduction Standards to allow for important discussions between the AGCO and Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) on the approach to burden reduction in the gaming sector.
The AGCO and OLG remain committed to the reduction of inefficiencies in the gaming sector to help create the requisite environment for all gaming sector participants to thrive while upholding the public interest and respecting commercial value, as well as the distinct roles of each Crown Agency.
For clarity, the current legislative framework and existing commercial contracts will remain in effect.
The AGCO and OLG will work together to provide regular updates to the industry through coordinated communications and anticipate completing this important work by the end of the calendar year.
