Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Ltd. says it plans to invest roughly $31 million to build the new Cascades Casino North Bay and create up to 300 new jobs in the City of North Bay.
The proposed new casino at 300 Pinewood Park Dr. will span over 39,000 sq. ft. It will feature 300 slots and eight live table games.
“Gateway is delighted to be coming to the City of North Bay. We are proud to be one more reason to make this city your entertainment destination. This is the first time Gateway has put shovels in the ground in northern Ontario and we are very excited to be offering the citizens of North Bay a new and exciting entertainment and dining experience in their city. Today’s investment of $31 million will not only create 300 new jobs in North Bay, but will also provide millions in economic spin-offs throughout construction and with locally sourced goods and services when completed,” stated Carrie Kormos, chief marketing and communications officer for Gateway Ontario.
The facility will also be home to Gateway’s signature restaurant brands, MATCH Eatery & Public House and The Buffet. The new casino is expected to open in mid-July 2020.
The proposed new entertainment and casino complex in North Bay is the latest announcement by Gateway following the news last month of the completion of an $18 million renovation and rebranding of Gateway Casinos Hanover site to Playtime Hanover. The company is currently nearing completion of a new $36 million Cascades Casino in Chatham-Kent. Gateway recently opened its first Starlight Casino in Point Edward, Ontario, after a $26 million renovation to that site.
