Province announces renewed lottery agreement

The Government of Saskatchewan, Sask Sport, SaskCulture and the Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association signed a renewed lottery distribution agreement, continuing a longstanding and successful partnership.

The renewed agreement will see proceeds from lottery ticket sales support sport, culture and recreation across the province for the next six years.

Funding from Sask Lotteries benefits over 12,000 sport, culture and recreation groups throughout the province. For the 2022-23 fiscal year, $60 million from the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund was granted to sport, culture, and recreation organizations across Saskatchewan.

The agreement allows continued investments in strategic priority areas, such as engaging diverse and equity-deserving populations; supporting access to safe and welcoming sport, culture and recreation communities; and encouraging well-being and active lifestyles.
