In November 2018, the AGCO launched the second phase of its Electronic Raffle Regulatory Framework to reduce the administrative burden on Ontario charities and religious organizations, and to provide them with greater flexibility when conducting and managing raffles.

Providing charities and religious organizations with more options for raffles, including electronic, online and paper-based raffles, the launch streamlined the administration of charitable raffles while increasing fundraising opportunities for the charitable gaming sector.

By taking a phased approach to electronic raffle regulation, the AGCO is ensuring that charitable raffles are conducted and managed in accordance with the principles of honesty, integrity and in the broader public interest.

Working collaboratively with the charitable gaming sector, the AGCO will continue to examine opportunities to permit a wider variety of raffles in future implementation phases of its electronic raffle framework.
