Great Canadian Corporation to reopen several casinos

29 June 2021

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Further to the announcement today from the British Columbia provincial government that certain businesses can reopen, such as casinos, Great Canadian Gaming Corporation will be reopening the following properties on Thursday, 1 July 2021:

- River Rock Casino Resort
- Hard Rock Casino - Vancouver
- Elements Casino Victoria
- Elements Casino Surrey
- Great Canadian Casino - Nanaimo
- Elements Casino Chilliwack
- Hastings Racecourse
- Chances Maple Ridge
- Chances Casino - Dawson Creek

The properties will reopen with a reduction in slot machine and live table game capacity to reflect physical distancing requirements,as well as limited food and beverage services. The Company’s British Columbia properties have been closed since 16 March 2020 to support the provincial government’s efforts to contain the spread COVID-19 in the province. “This is another exciting development for Great Canadian and our recovery from the impact of the pandemic,” stated Terrance Doyle, the Company’s Interim Chief Executive Officer. “Importantly, these reopenings mean over 1,000 of our team members returning to work and generating revenue for the Province and our communities. With the reopening of our properties in Ontario on the horizon, we are poised to begin rebuilding our business,” concluded Doyle.
