Community

Gateway Casinos & Entertainment has the privilege of operating in cities and towns across Canada. As a company, we gain so much from each of these communities and believe it is our responsibility to give back, pitch in and provide support to those causes that matter most to our neighbours. Gateway strongly believes in offering not just our resources, but also our time, our know-how and our properties in supporting local efforts in the communities where we operate.

Community News

Our team members are proud to live in the neighbourhoods and towns in which they work and are eager to give back in their own way. We support and encourage them to be actively involved in projects, causes and initiatives that aim to build stronger, healthier and more vibrant communities.

GatewayGIVES supports a wide variety of local initiatives. Last year, Gateway and its properties were pleased to donate over $600,000 in monetary and in-kind support as well as countless hours of volunteer time. We support a wide range of initiatives, including the Scotiabank MS Walk, Dining Out For Life, the Heart & Stroke Foundation, the Langley Good Times Cruise and the Special Olympics BC.

Testimonials

Every few months the Lake City Casino incredible staff collect all of the dropped coins, change left over and chips forgotten. To date they have raised and donated $28,260 since 2009 to the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation for the Penticton Regional Hospital. Their generous support is for the best medical equipment available for the residents of the South Okanagan. On behalf of the medical staff and board of directors, thank you everyone involved. Lake City Casino staff are one of our community heroes.”

“The Canadian Festival of Chili and BBQ has been hosted by Cascades Casino for the past five years. Putting on two full days of cooking competitions and the largest Chili and BBQ Championships in Canada and the Northwest is no small task! Cascades and Gateway Casinos has always been a huge proponent and problem solver in delivering the best possible event to BC.

As a huge community supporter Gateway Casinos has enabled us to raise over $40,000 in support of The BC Professional Fire Fighters’ Burn Fund which directly helps burn victims where we live. We look forward to a very long and rewarding relationship with Cascades and Gateway Casinos, a strong community partner.”

“The Burn fund is very excited about working with Gateway Casino. They have been a long-time supporter of our fundraising efforts. It is great to see the annual Canadian BBQ & Chili Festival get bigger each year in Langley, and now this summer, our first ‘Night of inspiration and comedy’ gala. I could not have attempted this without Gateway’s support and guidance. I look forward to continuing our partnership and supporting burn survivors in BC.”
