Dear OSSCO members and supports: 

Ontario Charitable Gaming Association (OCGA) Continues to Push for Break Open Ticket (BOT) Fairness

OSSCO is a charity which receives no core funding. We raise monies through our social enterprise activities, grants, donations and the selling of break open tickets (BOT). BOT’s are the only gaming product which is taxed an additional 29% with an “Admin Fee”. OSSCO is asking for your help to send an email or text to your Ontario MPP to ask that the “Admin Fee”/tax is removed from charities who raise monies selling BOT’s.

What can you, our members and supporters do to help?

OSSCO’s and the OCGA’s message will be much stronger if Ontario MPPs hear back from the charities, their members and supporters about how important it is for the new government to correct this injustice. 

Please go to botfairness.com where you’ll find a sample letter/email text that you can use (and share with others) to send to your Ontario MPP. 

It’s our charity’s funds which we’ve worked hard to raise that’s being taken away through this tax. Please support OSSCO in its’ efforts to eliminate this additional tax (“Admin Fee”) by making your voice heard on our behalf.
