Apply for your lottery licence early to avoid delays

29 April 2015

Public Service Announcement 

Apply for your lottery licence early to avoid delays 

Does your group or organization need a lottery licence for an upcoming event? Make sure to apply early to avoid delays or refusal of your lottery licence application. 

Applications for lottery licences must be submitted at least one month in advance of the proposed date of the draw or lottery. Consumer Affairs will no longer accept applications that are received less than one month before the lottery event. 

Groups are also reminded to submit required documents, including a statement of account, after each lottery event before they submit an application for a new or additional licence. Failure to submit these post-event documents will result in delays or refusal of future lottery licence applications. 

For more information about lottery licences, contact the Consumer Affairs division of the Department of Community and Government Services, toll-free at 1-866-223-8139.
