We are one of the Government of Ontario's largest sources of non-tax revenue, and the funds we generate are used to support provincial priorities, including the operation of hospitals, culture, amateur sports and more.
Along with providing revenue, we contribute to the creation of local jobs and the purchasing of local goods and services, as well as drive sales for lottery retailers and support community projects and events.
