ALBERTA RAFFLE LICENCE RULES
An approved organization can purchase a raffle licence to run a raffle with a ticket value of $10,000 or less, and to raffle off small prizes.
Only religious groups and charities (including community organizations, arts and cultural groups, and amateur sports organizations) can apply for a raffle licence.
Profits from the raffle must be used for religious or charitable activities. The Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission licences gamine events such as raffles.
Conducting a gaming event without a licence is a serious criminal offense.
