UPDATE: Province confirms new partnership to expand Woodbine
The province has confirmed that it has selected two companies to run its casinos in the GTA, which would include expanding the gaming facilities at Woodbine.
The Great Canadian Gaming Corporation and Brookfield Business Partners will operate the OLG Slots at Woodbine, OLG Slots at Ajax Downs and the Great Blue Heron Casino located in the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.
The partnership will include property expansion to enhance gaming offerings and include new conference facilities, hotels and premier entertainment venues.
Last year, Toronto council approved a casino at Woodbine with conditions, including that the development would need to create new jobs.
