OLG To Update Horse Racing Economic Impact Study

The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), in partnership with horse racing groups and associations, is conducting a post-pandemic economic assessment to quantify the current economic impact of the Ontario horse racing industry. This will help OLG and the industry better understand how the horse racing landscape has changed since OLG’s first comprehensive economic impact study, conducted in 2019.

In support of this important initiative, beginning January 9, 2024, a survey questionnaire will be made accessible through industry associations. Please look out for an email containing a link to the study. Alternatively, if you have not already done so, you may use the following LINK to tell OLG which email address you would like the survey sent to. Your participation is critical to help ensure the updated study captures a diverse range of data that accurately reflects the economic contribution of the industry. 

The survey will be open from January 9 to February 9, 2024. It will take no more than 15 minutes for respondents to complete and will ask about operational and capital spending, as well as workforce details. 

The updated study will provide an important refreshed baseline of validated information that can be relied on by industry members to engage in meaningful and productive discussions about the sector. 

Thank you in advance for taking part in the survey. If you have any questions about this initiative, please contact horseracingei@olg.ca.
