B.C. First Nations in line to receive around $100M of BCLC's annual earnings


October 10, 2019

The B.C. government is introducing new legislation that would see First Nations receive a chunk of the B.C. Lottery Corporation's annual earnings.

If the amendment to the Gaming Control Act is passed, eligible B.C. First Nations will be provided with seven per cent of BCLC's net income for the next 23 years — amounting to roughly $100 million a year — according to a statement by the Ministry of Indigenous Relations and Reconciliation and the attorney general.
