Charitable Gaming Licensing
  • The Charitable Gaming Licensing Branch of SLGA is responsible for the licensing and regulation of charitable gaming in Saskatchewan. The branch issues licences for bingo, breakopen, raffle lotteries, Texas Hold 'em poker and Monte Carlo (mock casino) events to charitable organizations throughout the province.


  • The Charitable Gaming Licensing Branch issues licences in accordance with the Criminal Code of Canada, The Alcohol and Gaming Regulation Act, 1997 and The Gaming Licensing Regulations. Licences are issued, as outlined in Section 207(1)(b) of the Criminal Code, to charitable or religious organizations provided the proceeds from the lottery scheme are used for a charitable or religious object or purpose.


  • The Branch is also responsible to ensure licensees conduct their lottery scheme in compliance with SLGA policy and the Terms and Conditions pursuant to their licence.

  • All charitable or religious groups and organizations licensed by SLGA under section 207(1)(b) of the Criminal Code to conduct bingo, breakopen ticket sales, raffles, Texas Hold ‘em poker and Monte Carlo (mock casino) events are eligible to receive a charitable gaming grant of 25 per cent of net proceeds raised, to a maximum of $100,000 annually.
