Rideau Carleton Casino

4837 Albion Road, Ottawa, ON K1X 1A3


In partnership with Rideau Carleton Casino, revised renovations have begun for the development of a unique and dynamic destination that will re-energize Ottawa’s entertainment scene. As part of the service agreement with Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), Hard Rock International took over the day-to-day operations of Rideau Carleton Casino in September 2017. With updated construction plans and timelines finalized, we have now embarked on a $350 million construction project, one of the largest private investment developments currently in Ottawa.

Stay tuned for exciting news and announcements to come!


The development of a revitalized gaming and entertainment destination in Ottawa will recapture spending from Ontario residents and tourists who are currently traveling to Quebec for gaming and entertainment. It’s estimated that nearly $60M is lost to the neighboring province on an annual basis. 

Hard Rock and Rideau Carleton Casino are investing more than $350 million over the course of the multi-phased project, which is expected to create in excess of 4,500 direct and indirect construction and ongoing employment opportunities in the City of Ottawa, as well as over 700 employment opportunities at the facility once the expansion is complete.

The project is entirely funded by Hard Rock and Rideau Carleton Casino, and is expected to generate over $206 million in tax revenue for the Province of Ontario, the Federal Government, and the City of Ottawa once fully complete. Since 2019, OLG has given back over $1.82 billion in profit to the Province of Ontario from land-based casinos. In that same time, approximately $302 million went to municipalities and Indigenous communities that host casinos.
