November 9, 2018 - B.C. Gaming Event Licences Going Paperless

The Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch (GPEB) is pleased to announce that applications for licensed charitable gaming are going paperless in December 2018. Technical upgrades will improve service for clients by simplifying the application process.

Starting this December, GPEB will provide new content on our website to support clients, organizations and stakeholders through this transition to a paperless program. GPEB’s licensing team will also be available to assist by phone or email.  

Starting January 1, 2019, all licensed charitable gaming event applications and supporting documents must be filed online through our website.

Paper cheques to accompany applications will continue to be accepted for Class A, B and C licences. Class D applications will continue to accept only credit card payments.

Our dedicated team is here to assist Monday through Friday 7:30am to 4:30pm, except holidays
