The OLG's prediction is that by 2017-2018, its modernization plan will have created "2,300 net new industry jobs — and an estimated 4,000 jobs in hotels, restaurants, entertainment centres and retail."

Province-wide, mind you. I would guess that the markets where there's a wholly new facility and not simply a transfer of venue would see the largest growth. But there's not a lot of detail on these things, as the OLG admits.

The OLG's chosen wording also seems to sidestep the matter of net economic impact outside of the gaming industry, most visible in rural host communities.
