“The Innisfil Town Square is a wonderful addition to our town and I can’t wait for our community to come together to celebrate and explore this unique new space. This is a place that was designed to bring entertainment and community connection close to home, and our grand opening event this month will give residents a taste of the excitement that’s to come. We gratefully acknowledge OLG and a federal grant for helping make this project possible.”

“OLG is proud to be a vital part of Innisfil for more than 22 years and we look forward to continuing to build on that support. Each and every year 100 per cent of OLG profits are invested in Ontario. From healthcare, to education, to community festivals, OLG’s profits are hard at work in Innisfil and all across our province. And, we appreciate the contribution of gaming site employees at Gateway Casino Innisfil for making life in Innisfil that much richer. When you play at an Ontario casino, you play for Ontario.”
