We wanted to provide you with a quick update on the reopening of the property. While we understand the province has indicated casinos may be able to reopen we still have not received clear information about the restrictions, therefore there is no firm reopening date.

We know that we will be well positioned to reopen the casino safely when it makes sense to do so.  We know you have many questions regarding the reopening and we hope to have a date soon. Please Stay Safe + Sound.

We are excited and look forward to welcoming you back soon!
