The Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), in partnership with horse racing groups and associations, is conducting a post-pandemic economic assessment to quantify the current economic impact of the Ontario horse racing industry. This will help OLG and the industry better understand how the horse racing landscape has changed since OLG’s first comprehensive economic impact study, conducted in 2019.

The survey is now accessible and will be available through to Feb. 9, 2024. Participation from Ontario's harness racing industry is critical to help ensure the updated study captures a diverse range of data that accurately reflects its the economic contribution.

The updated study will provide an important refreshed baseline of validated information that can be relied on by industry members to engage in meaningful and productive discussions about the sector.

All questions refer to calendar year 2023 (with end date between Jan. 1, 2023 and Dec. 31, 2023). If you have your financial records in hand, this survey should take roughly 20 minutes to complete. 

Please note:  

  1. Due to the survey design (including tables) it is strongly recommended that you complete this survey on a desktop/laptop computer rather than on a tablet/mobile device. 
  2. Once started, survey responses are automatically saved. If you are interrupted while responding and are unable to complete the entire survey in one sitting, simply revisit the survey link to continue where you left off. 

Interested participants can opt-in to receive a copy of the high-level results once the study has been completed. To be eligible, you must complete the entire survey and indicate your preferred mode of contact by 10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 9, 2024. The results will be made available at the end of the study.
