Prior to a Nevada licence being issued to an organization the following must be submitted to the Licensing Officer at Chatham-Kent:

  • A copy of Charitable Status from Revenue Canada

  • A copy of Non-Profit Status (for charitable purposes) from the MCCR

  • Current and last year's budget

  • Last two year's financial statements

  • List of current year's Board of Directors

Once the following correspondence has been approved by Licensing Services, the organization may file an application at any Service Centre in Chatham-Kent.


The licence fee for a Nevada licence is 3% of the total retail value of the prizes to be awarded.

Sales Location

The location that has been chosen to sell Nevada tickets for the charitable organization must be registered as a third party location with the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. This registration must be paid by the third party and must be renewed on a yearly basis to the Province. Forms available at the Civic Centre.

Trust Account

A lottery trust account must be opened by the organization with a minimum of two signing officers (no family members allowed).

License Duration

Licenses are issued for a period not exceeding 2 years.

Should tickets remain on hand at the time of the licence expiring, an extension may be granted for a maximum of 6 months, from the Municipal Centre that issued the original licence. The extension must be granted prior to expiration, or the licence is void.

An interim report should be submitted in the 6th month of the Nevada licence unless few tickets remain, then the final report would suffice in a short period of time.


Following the final ticket of the licence being sold, the licensee must submit final reports to the Licensing Office within 30 days (along with all deposit slips, copies of bank statements and cheque, front and back).


Use of proceeds must be approved by the Licensing Officer in accordance with the organization's mandate and Provincial Regulations.
