Contests and Sweepstakes
Contests and sweepstakes are quasi-gaming. Therefore, there a number of rules and regulations that contest and sweepstakes operators must follow, including the Canadian Criminal Code, the Canadian Consumer Protection Act, and, if the contest or sweepstakes is offered in Quebec, Quebec’s Rules Respecting Publicity Contests. Making sure that your contest or sweepstakes complies with relevant laws is essential to avoid criminal sanctions, fines, and bad public relations.
