OLG CANCELS RFPQ FOR OTTAWA AREA GAMING BUNDLE
TORONTO – The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is cancelling the Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ) for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle.
OLG and the landlord have not been able to finalize a lease for the gaming site at Rideau Carleton Raceway. OLG hopes to reach a commercially viable solution in the near future. A finalized lease for the gaming site is required for OLG to proceed with the procurement process to select a service provider for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle, given that relocation is not possible at this time.
Throughout the procurement process, OLG has engaged the services of a Fairness Monitor to provide oversight and advice to support integrity and fairness.
At approximately $2 billion annually, OLG provides the Ontario government with its largest source of non-tax revenue. Modernization will help OLG provide more money to Ontario for key government services, including health care and education.
OLG is a provincial agency responsible for gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, the PlayOLG Internet gaming website and the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres across the province. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $42 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the province have helped support the operation of hospitals; prevention, treatment and research of problem gambling; amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program; and local and provincial charities. OLG was a Premier Sponsor of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am / Parapan Am Games.
