How long does it take to get a raffle licence?

We require three weeks to process applications for community raffles with anticipated gross revenue of $10,000 or less. We require six weeks to process applications for raffles with anticipated gross revenue over $10,000. Keep in mind it will take longer to process applications proposing to operate any part of a raffle electronically or online, or if your application is incomplete or inaccurate. The application guides (community raffle application guide, raffle application guide) will help you properly complete and submit your application to us. You can’t advertise your raffle until your licence is approved.

For individuals and groups wanting to conduct social occasion raffles, we require approximately one week for processing your application.
