Examples of Lotteries are:
In the above examples consideration (cash) is paid for a chance (ticket/card) to win a prize.
All lotteries require a license either issued by the municipality or the Provincial Government. Licenses can only be issued to charitable or non-profit organizations as defined by the Alcohol & Gaming Commission of Ontario. The Clerk's Department can advise organizations if they qualify for lottery licensing and which category is applicable. Organizations which have never been issued a licence must first complete the Application for Licensing Eligibility to determine if they are eligible to apply.
Proceeds from lotteries must be used for a charitable, education or religious object or purpose in the Province of Ontario.
Applications, terms and conditions and municipal requirements may be picked up in the Clerk's Department at Town Hall, 20 Pelham Town Square, Fonthill.
