On April 4, 2019, Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Ltd., announced the casino will be placed just south of the Beachwood Road roundabout.

January 2019 Update

In March 2018, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) selected Gateway Casinos and Entertainment Ltd., to operate a gaming and entertainment facility in the Georgian Triangle.

In October 2018, it was determined that Gateway would situate its casino in Wasaga Beach.

The town has five sites suitable for a casino.

The sites are as follows:

  1. Beachwood Drive (old Highway 26), Collingwood Airport Road and Mosley Street.
  2. Fairgrounds Road at Beachwood Drive (old Highway 26).
  3. 489 River Road West

  5. Town-owned land at Beach Area 1.

Gateway is now reviewing the sites to determine which best suits its needs.

There will be a formal announcement made when the site is chosen.
