Lottery Licencing

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) is the regulatory body that governs the charitable gaming industry in Ontario. The Order-in-Council gives municipal councils the authority to issue licenses for most lottery events conducted in the community.

Before issuing any lottery license, the Municipality's Lottery Licensing Officer will conduct an eligibility review of the applicant organization to determine if it is eligible to raise and/or receive lottery proceeds. Organizations requesting an eligibility review are encouraged to review the list of documents required to determine eligibility. These documents will need to be submitted as part of the eligibility review process. To review this list go to Lottery License Eligibility Documentation.

Eligibility Reviews are typically completed within five to seven business days.

Applications for lottery licenses (by organizations that have been determined to be eligible) are generally issued within three business days.

All questions regarding lottery licensing should be directed to the Cemeteries & Licensing Coordinator: (807) 737-4670, ext. 2210 or in person at the Municipal Office Building on 25 Fifth Avenue.
