Carrie Kormos, Gateway Casinos chief marketing and communications officer, said: “We were very fortunate when we arrived here in Sault Ste. Marie to receive so much support from the city and our partners at OLG. The Mayor and Council have continued to support us since we first started here. But most critically, we were lucky to inherit a staff so invested in this community.”

OLG’s chair of the board of directors, Jim Warren, added: “For 25 years, the Sault Ste. Marie Casino has been a fixture in the community. It has created hundreds of jobs and delivered important revenue to the city. Over the years, the city has wisely invested the $35m in police and fire operations, the Sault-area hospital and many other important initiatives that have made this community a great place to live. OLG truly values the strong and productive partnership we have with Gateway Casinos and Entertainment and the City of Sault Ste. Marie.”
