Renewed Lottery Agreement

on .

On January 30th, Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky announced a renewed lottery agreement, which guarantees that sport, culture and recreation organizations will continue to receive and benefit from Saskatchewan Lotteries proceeds over the next five years. This morning, the Government of Saskatchewan, Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association signed the agreement.

"Saskatchewan Lotteries is a successful fundraiser for community sport, culture and recreation," said Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky.  “The Saskatchewan Lotteries provides opportunities to more than 600,000 participants in many communities across our province.  These far-reaching benefits would not be possible without our partners, Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association, and of course thousands of volunteers.”

Proceeds from Saskatchewan Lotteries support over 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups in the province, reaching 1,000 Saskatchewan communities and over 600,000 registered participants each year.

The Saskatchewan Lotteries Community Grant Program is a partnership among Sask Sport Inc., SaskCulture Inc. and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association Inc. and assists in the development of sport, culture and recreation programs by providing funds to non-profit community organizations operated by volunteers.

The goal of this program is to get people involved in sport, culture and recreation activities by enabling communities to address the needs of local residents. If the community grant is more than $2,000, a portion of the total grant must be used for programs aimed at increasing participation for under-represented populations such as indigenous people, seniors, women, the economically disadvantaged, persons with a disability, and single-parent families. The under-represented requirement can be met by including these populations in regular programs and/or by creating special programs to meet their needs.
