If you are planning an event that includes a lottery, raffle, bingo, etc. you may be required to obtain a lottery licence from the Municipality or the Province. Eligible charitable or religious organizations that choose to conduct a lottery utilizing in-person sales may apply for a lottery licence through the Municipality. A trust account for lottery proceeds and expenditures is required. Eligible organizations that intend to use electronic systems (email, social media) to sell raffle tickets, must obtain a licence from the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, not the Municipality. More information on electronic raffles can be found here on the AGCO website.

Below you will find some select information you need to know before considering a lottery. For full details, visit: Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario or contact the Clerk's Department at 613-774-2105.
