BCLC identified a marketplace opportunity for an additional gaming facility in Greater Victoria that would complement the Elements Casino Victoria (formerly the View Royal Casino). In 2015, an Expression of Interest process was initiated to determine interest among six local governments in the region.
BCLC originally selected the City of Victoria as its preferred host local government for a potential gambling facility. On January 17, 2019, the City of Victoria came to a decision to postpone indefinitely any decision indicating that the City is interested in hosting a casino.
BCLC is currently evaluating options and potential next steps for Greater Victoria.
