Under the Gaming Control Act, 1992 (GCA), the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO) has responsibility for regulating lottery games conducted by the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG).
As part of the AGCO’s regulatory responsibilities in the lottery sector, the AGCO conducts eligibility assessments on those looking to work in or supply goods or services to Ontario’s gaming industry to determine if applicants are suitable for registration under the GCA.
There are four classes of registration that apply to those who work in or supply the lottery sector in Ontario:
- Sellers (also known as lottery retailers) – retailers of OLG lottery products and/or break open tickets
- Category 1 Gaming Assistants – employees who exercise a significant level of decision-making authority or who have significant supervisory or training responsibility with respect to lottery gaming
- Gaming-related suppliers – suppliers of gaming-related equipment or services in relation to lottery gaming
- Non-gaming related suppliers – suppliers of non-gaming related equipment or services in relation to lottery gaming (if they provide over $750,000 of goods and services per year to the OLG or lottery gaming sites).
This portal is intended for those applying to become or are already registered as a Category 1 Gaming Assistant.
Use the forms and resources below to help you apply for registration or to better understand your obligations as a registrant in the lottery sector.
