1990’s: St. Clair Begins Training Workers For Windsor’s New Casino
St. Clair College is 50 years old and we’re taking a walk down memory lane…
In 1992, St. Clair College opened a Gaming Training Institute in preparation for the opening of Windsor’s new ‘Interim Casino’.
To help support the new program, the Gaming Education Consortium was formed by St. Clair along with Georgian, Niagara and Sault Colleges to share resources and experience among colleges in areas with casinos.
In May 1994, Casino Windsor opened in a temporary location at the former Art Gallery of Windsor becoming Ontario's first casino. A grand opening at the permanent location on Riverside Drive was held in July 1998.
