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) – entities that sell lottery products on behalf of the OLG and/or sell break open tickets on behalf of a charitable lottery licence
- Gaming Assistants – employees who exercise a significant level of decision-making authority or who have significant supervisory or training responsibility
- Gaming-related suppliers – suppliers that manufacturer, provide, install, test, maintain or repair gaming equipment or who provide consulting or similar services directly related to the playing of a lottery scheme or the operation of a gaming site, related exclusively to the lottery sector in Ontario
- Non-gaming related suppliers – suppliers that provide goods or services that relate to the construction, furnishing, repair, maintenance or business but that, in the opinion of the Registrar, are not directly related to the playing of a lottery scheme or the operation of a gaming site.
This portal is intended for those applying to become or are already registered as a Category 1 Gaming Assistant.
You will complete all of your lottery and gaming-related transactions with the AGCO online. For more information, please visit the iAGCO Information page.
