Rideau Carelton Raceway Turns into Hard Rock Casino Ottawa

Councillor Darouze Welcomes Hard Rock Casino in Osgoode Ward

OTTAWA, May 15, 2017 – Councillor Darouze welcomes Hard Rock Casino Ottawa as the service provider for the Ottawa Area Gaming Bundle. This $320 million partnership will bring more than 1900 construction jobs and 2000 ongoing jobs in the community. This is a great initiative that will boost our local economy and will provide local jobs for our rural residents.

The Rideau Carelton Raceway (RCR) opened its doors in 1962 and has been a vital part of the horse racing community in Ottawa. The grounds are also home to the Capital Fair and serve  the community as a facility for a variety of charitable events.

 The RCR has always given back to the community and we look forward to the continued generous support from the Hard Rock Casino Ottawa.
