TORONTO, ON – Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) continues to take steps towards modernizing the Niagara Falls gaming market.
Today, OLG confirmed that the consortium, Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners – which includes Bird Construction Inc. – has been named the preferred proponent in OLG's procurement process to design, build and maintain a new Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre (NFEC).
The NFEC is a critical part of the modernization of the Niagara casinos. Completion of the project will result in significant capital investment and economic development.
The new entertainment centre is expected to have over 5,000 seats and create direct jobs associated with the construction, ongoing maintenance and operations of the facility. The facility will eventually be operated by the service provider selected to take over day-to-day operations of Fallsview Casino Resort and Casino Niagara.
The selection of Niagara Falls Entertainment Partners and the completion of the procurement process for the NFEC are subject to entering into the final agreements and closing of the commercial and financial transactions.
OLG will provide more details about the NFEC once the procurement is complete.
OLG is the Ontario government agency that delivers gaming entertainment in a socially responsible manner. OLG conducts and manages gaming facilities, the sale of province-wide lottery games, PlayOLG Internet gaming, the delivery of bingo and other electronic gaming products at Charitable Gaming Centres and is helping to build a more sustainable horse racing industry in Ontario. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $44 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. These payments to the province support the operation of hospitals, amateur sport through the Quest for Gold program, local and provincial charities and problem gambling prevention, treatment and research.
