Lottery Licenses


The municipality, partnered with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario, may issue lottery licences to eligible local charitable or religious organizations.

Municipal councils have the authority to issue licenses for most lottery events conducted in their communities, including:

  • Bingo events with prize boards of up to $5,500
  • Raffles with prizes of up to $50,000
  • Break Open Ticket events that are not conducted in conjunction with another licensed gaming event, and where the tickets are sold within the municipality
  • 50/50 draws
  • Bazaar gaming events
  • Media Bingo

Staff at the Municipality of Strathroy-Caradoc can advise organizations if they qualify for lottery licensing and which category they may fall under. Licensing staff can also direct organizations who may require a provincial licence (any lottery the municipality cannot issue a license for) to the appropriate licensing authority.
