Types of OLG Lottery Registrations

On June 1, 2012, changes to the regulations under the Gaming Control Act, 1992 came into force as part of the Ontario government’s initiative to modernize gaming and enhance flexibility for gaming operations in the province.

Among the changes, a streamlined registration scheme has been introduced which both reduces the number of registration categories from 24 to seven and allows individuals and businesses to supply goods and services across all gaming sectors without having to obtain separate registrations.

The table below compares and relates the previous categories of OLG lottery registrations to the new classes of registration effective June 1, 2012.
