Wasaga Beach is investing its casino revenue into a health centre for the community. Talk about giving back to your own community!
This revenue was received for being home to Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation’s PlayTime Wasaga Beach. Residential officials of Wasaga Beach have been contemplating investing in a health centre which will also be an after-hours clinic for the community. Thanks to this investment, this clinic could be operating by early September 2023.
If you didn’t know, the Ontario government is obliged to give away a slice of its casino profits to localities that are home to its land-based sites like PlayTime. This is done in accordance with the Municipal Contribution Agreement. A standardized formula is used to determine how much the community gets, and it features a gradual scheme of income for every place.
The Mayor of Wasaga Beach expressed that this clinic has been a long time coming, and the residents without access to a medical professional needed a place to go when any medical issues arise. He also expressed that the community hopes for future investments also to be allocated to Wasaga Beach and neighbouring communities’ health sectors.
The health centre will be fully equipped with top-of-the-line equipment and an efficient medical office. This new centre will be operated and developed by the Georgian Bay Family Health Organization. Thanks to this organization, Wasaga Beach could have this health centre by the end of summer.
