Update -- Aug 28th, 2018  Appeal Case Synopsis Submitted


Welcome to Casino Free Sudbury


What is this about?

We are facing the prospect of a large full casino being built in our community by The Ontario Government. This casino, endorsed by the City of Sudbury, and The Sudbury Chamber of Commerce, will have a profound negative economic and cultural effect on our community.

1. According to the city and the OLG, $100-150 Million is expected to be lost to gambling in the proposed new full casino.

2. The patrons of the new casino will be 90% local. The majority of patrons from outside the community would be visiting Sudbury regardless of a casino.

3. This vast sum of money lost to gambling will be offset by money not spent on existing businesses and cultural events.

( See CasinoFACTS for details).


The "Casino Free Sudbury" campaign is about educating businesses and charities about the effects of full casinos in remote communities, and giving a voice to those who prefer to develop our community without the impediment of a full casino.

See The Legal Appeal for how we intend to accomplish our goals.
