What We Do: OLG Lotteries


Overview

Regulation of Provincially-Operated Lotteries

Under the Gaming Control Act, 1992 (GCA), the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) regulates the sale of commercial lottery tickets. Specifically, the AGCO registers those who sell lottery tickets and those who provide services to the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) with respect to lottery tickets.

Lottery-related registrants are subject to all of the requirements of the GCA, and other standards and requirements established by the Registrar of Alcohol and Gaming (Registrar) such as investigation by the Registrar concerning the character, integrity and financial competence of registrants/applicants and interested persons, the ability of the Registrar to propose suspensions and revocations of registrations, and inspections and investigations by the AGCO to ensure regulatory compliance.
