Most recently, the company’s two casinos closed for nearly a month in January this year, but indicators such as the lifting of restrictions suggest the industry could soon recover.
Niagara Casino President Richard Taylor recalled that the company with Casino Niagara and Fallsview Casino Resort is one of the largest employers in the Niagara Falls area, with more than 3,500 employees. He said the company summoned more than 2,200 employees due to the reopening in January, and the size of the recall is expected to increase further as the restrictions are lifted.
Mr. Taylor explained that the unprecedented situation is putting quite a heavy burden on employees, some of whom are on emergency leave for infectious diseases in the province. This program allows you to take up to three paid days off. According to the company’s president, there is also a provision for unpaid, vocational leave. In addition, the company will summon employees based on customer level and ability to reopen all amenities.
In addition, he also said that it has been difficult for the company to operate at limited capacity or not at all in the past two years. But he made it clear that he understands the need for health and safety restrictions and supports Ontario’s public health guidelines. He also shared that the company is happy to work in Tokyo again.
In addition to gaming activities, the two casinos will also witness the return of dining facilities and live shows. The Avalon Ballroom is scheduled to open next month, and the Jersey Nights show is starting to have fun. The president also added that dining options have reappeared, hotels are running, and everything looks good now.
a quarter-century celebration
Last December, Casino Niagara celebrated its 25th anniversary of its special service at Niagara Falls. Since its opening, the casino has welcomed more than 100 million gamblers every year. To commemorate this, LEV2L introduced a special menu, and the casino was illuminated in the company’s trademark green and gold colors.
Impact on the Local Economy
Both Niagara Casino and Fallsview Casino Resort bring tremendous economic value to the region, as they receive about $20 million a year in the city of Niagara Falls.
