Great Canadian Gaming Corporation has announced that its gaming and entertainment destination located in Pickering, Ontario, in the eastern Greater Toronto Area, will be called Pickering Casino Resort. The resort, said the firm, will be a draw for all who enjoy exceptional service, thrilling gaming options, live entertainment and diverse dining experiences.

Construction of Pickering Casino Resort started last year and is projected to open in two phases. The first phase is slated to launch in early 2020 and will feature a number of gaming and dining options, while the second will include a full scope of entertainment amenities and hotel offerings. Once complete, the development will employ over 2,000 as part of the casino resort’s team.

“While we have so much more to develop and construct, being able to share the brand name of the resort with the community is an exciting next step for us,” said Tyrone Waite, General Manager, Pickering Casino Resort.

“We will now be concentrating on hosting career fairs and seeking local talent to join our team added Waite. We are looking for people who have exceptional guest service skills and are willing to learn and grow with the company. We have great training programs that will equip our team members with the right skill set and set them up for future success.”
