Applications, Licences and Permits

Lottery Licences

If you’re an eligible charitable or religious organization, you may be able to raise funds through provincially or municipally licensed lottery events.  

The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) administers the lottery licensing program in the province, and municipalities and the AGCO are responsible for issuing lottery licences to eligible charitable and religious organizations. 

Information on lottery licensing is available from the AGCO at Charitable Lottery Licensing.

The Clerk's Department is responsible for Lottery Licensing in the Township of Algonquin Highlands and can advise organizations if they qualify for lottery licensing.  Organizations that have never been issued a licence will need to complete a Lottery Licensing Application to determine if they are eligible to apply.
