Community Lottery Program

The Community Lottery Program provides municipalities and local authorities with funding to support art, sport and recreation in their communities. Each fiscal year the Community Lottery Program is allocated $410,000. A combination of population and a flat rate sliding scale is used to determine a recipient’s allocation. Yukon healthcare statistics are used to calculate population; these statistics are based on health care registration and are attributed to the appropriate community based on postal codes. The intent of the program is to enable local decision making to meet community needs and create equitable access to lottery revenues for all Yukon people.

Recognition Requirements and Standards

Lotteries Yukon funds the arts, sport and recreation through their three funding programs (Recreational Projects Program, Travel Assistance Program and Community Lottery Program) and by sharing lottery profits with Yukon Government Sport and Recreation Branch and Cultural Services Branch. Recipients of funding supported by lottery ticket revenues are required to publicly acknowledge the funding support provided by Lotteries Yukon. Further information on these requirements is provided in:
