Where does the Money Go?

OLG is an Operational Enterprise responsible for province-wide lottery games and gaming facilities. Since 1975, OLG has provided nearly $40 billion to the Province and the people of Ontario. OLG’s annual payments to the Province have helped support health care; education, research, prevention and treatment of problem gambling; amateur sport through the QUEST FOR GOLD program; and local and provincial charities.

In addition to OLG’s payments to the province there are also several direct beneficiaries of gaming proceeds, including 24 host municipalities and Ontario First Nations.

This year OLG generated $3.3 billion in economic activity in Ontario
