The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has announced that 11 of its Ontario casinos will be open for business again on 16 July. This follows the provincial government’s move to Step 3 of its reopening plan.
The venues set to reopen are Casino Woodbine, Great Blue Heron Casino, Casino Ajax, Elements Casino Mohawk, Elements Casino Flamboro, Elements Casino Brantford, Elements Casino Grand River, Shorelines Casino Belleville, Shorelines Casino Peterborough, Shorelines Casino Thousand Islands, and Shorelines Slots at Kawartha Downs.
The company’s Pickering Casino Resort casino facilities are expected to reopen soon, with the rest of the resort opening later in 2022.
The current provincial health and safety framework stipulates that the reopened facilities must operate reduced gaming capacity to adequately meet the mandated physical distancing requirements,while the province has also made progress toward a regulated iGaming industry.
The Toronto-headquartered firm has already reopened several casinos in British Columbia on July 1 with its Halifax and Sydney, N.S. venues scheduled to open to the public again on June 16.
The Great Canadian Gaming Corp. was established in 1982 and operates 26 gaming, entertainment and hospitality venues in Ontario, British Columbia, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
