Our People, Our Business, Our Community

For the past 30 years, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has taken an active and supportive role within a number of communities coast to coast in Canada. As a corporation, we aim to provide assistance to charitable organizations that are able to make a difference and lend a helping hand.

Building strong communities is a key pillar and important part of our corporate strategy. We are proud of the contribution Great Canadian is able to make through the various ways we can assist those in need.

Every year, Great Canadian invests over $2 million in various organizations in British Columbia, Ontario, and Nova Scotia and our team members support dozens of local groups through countless volunteering hours.
