Made pursuant to the
ONTARIO LOTTERY AND GAMING CORPORATION ACT, 1999 and its Regulation 198/00, as amended
Effective January 1, 2012
Rules of Procedure for Arbitration of Lottery Disputes
These Rules list general, procedural and administrative matters that apply to arbitration of a lottery dispute using the provisions of section 11.2 of Ontario Regulation 198/00 as amended by Ontario Regulation 283/07 made under the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation Act, 1999. The Rules are effective January 1, 2012 and replace the Interim Rules of Procedure for Lottery Arbitrations.
It is the choice of the participants to the dispute to resolve a lottery dispute through arbitration or by proceeding in the Ontario courts. While, in general, arbitration is considered faster, more informal, and, often, less expensive than the court, each participant should obtain independent legal advice and consider the advantages and disadvantages of both systems before making your decision.
Costs of the arbitration are the responsibility of the participants. The arbitrators and the AGCO shall recover the costs for all services provided in relation to arbitration of a lottery dispute from the participants with the anticipated charges being collected from the participants in advance of the arbitration.
