Great Canadian Entertainment Sells Casino Nanaimo to Petroglyph Development

A historic agreement to sell Casino Nanaimo, a well-known facility on Vancouver Island, to Petroglyph Development has been announced by Great Canadian Entertainment. For both sides, this deal represents an important turning point in their history.

The acquisition was approved by the Great Canadian Board of Directors in unanimity. It is still pending customary closing conditions and regulatory clearances. For a maximum of two years following closure, Great Canadian will offer Petroglyph transition services as part of the final agreement.

Transition and Future Plans

Petroglyph Development, a wholly owned corporation of the Snuneymuxw First Nation, is dedicated to maximizing the economic potential of the Nation. Great Canadian CEO Matt Anfinson expressed confidence in the transition, saying, “We are very pleased to have executed this agreement. As the operator of Casino Nanaimo since its inception in 1986, we believe that under Petroglyph’s steady management, this transaction will provide Casino Nanaimo, its guests, and team members with an exciting new chapter.”

Anfinson added, “We look forward to the closing and then working with the Petroglyph team during the transition period to ensure an outstanding outcome for all parties.”

Petroglyph President Erralyn Joseph shared her excitement for the purchase, stating, “The Snuneymuxw group of companies are profoundly honored to support Snuneymuxw economic growth in significant and meaningful ways.”
