Lottery Licenses

A lottery and gaming licence from the Town of The Blue Mountains is required before you can host a lottery or raffle game. Applications for eligible organizations must be provided to the Clerk's Office 30 days before the start of the lottery event. If your eligibility to conduct and manage a lottery event in the Town has not yet been determined, please contact the Clerk's Office for assistance. 

All lotteries are regulated by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO). It is illegal to print tickets, promote, or conduct a charitable gaming event without a lottery licence. 

The Town of The Blue Mountains has the authority to issue licences for most lottery events in our community, including:

  • bingo events with prize boards of up to $5,500;
  • non-electronic raffles with prizes of up to $50,000;
  • 50/50 lotteries;
  • break open ticket events that are not conducted in conjunction with another licensed gaming event, and where the tickets are sold within the municipality;
  • bazaar gaming events; and
  • media bingo
