The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG; also Ontario Lottery and Gaming) is a Government of Ontario Crown agency which is responsible for the province's lotteries, charity and Aboriginal casinos, commercial casinos, slot machines at horse-racing tracks. It was created in April 2000 by merging the Ontario Lottery Corporation (OLC), which was established in 1975, and the Ontario Casino Corporation (OCC), established in 1994.
