WHAT WE DO
The global gaming industry has experienced tremendous growth and development in the past decade. Nowhere is this more evident than in Canada. Prior to the early 1990's the Canadian gaming industry consisted mainly of lotteries, pari-mutuel operations and bingo. Since this time, with the introduction of casinos and stand-alone electronic gaming devices, the Canadian gaming industry now includes all major gaming products. In 2010, the Canadian gaming industry will generate more than $16.0 billion in revenues (as measured by win). Gaming today represents a significant source of government revenue and jobs, and is increasingly contributing to other hospitality and tourism sectors.
As competition between regions has and will continue to increase, operators and investors face significant challenges including:
- > Evolving gaming policy
- > Inter- and intra-market competition
- > Growing demand for non-gaming amenities.
- > Industry consolidation
- > Impacts from internet gaming
