OLG undertook an open, fair and competitive procurement overseen by a Fairness Monitor in the selection of OGGLP as the service provider for the GTA bundle. In order to maintain the integrity and independence of procurement, the Province does not play a role in any of OLG's procurement processes, including selecting the service provider for the GTA. Any regulatory or criminal investigation, sanctions or charges against Great Canadian would have required disclosure to OLG under our procurement process.
Like any gaming operator in Ontario, Great Canadian is registered with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). AGCO performs extensive and independent due diligence into current and past business conduct before registering any gaming operator. In addition, AGCO examines a gaming operator's ability to act in accordance with the law, with integrity, honesty, and in the public interest.
OLG is working closely with BCLC, our counterpart in B.C., as well as regulators to exchange current information. OLG continues to monitor developments in B.C. and if other issues arise, OLG will respond accordingly.
