About Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation
Established in 1974, the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund for Sport, Culture and Recreation brought to together three partners – Sask Sport, SaskCulture and Saskatchewan Parks and Recreation Association – to form what is known today as the Tri-Global partnership. These three non-profit organizations work in partnership with the provincial government, under a multi-year licence agreement, which grants Sask Sport Inc. a licence to operate a major lottery corporation in the province. The partnership is given the responsibility of ensuring that the net proceeds from the lottery go to support the development of sport, culture and recreation in Saskatchewan. The Tri-Global partners share responsibility in the overall governance, policy direction and various joint programming initiatives, as well as managing their respective section of the Sask Lotteries Trust Fund.
The Lottery Licence Agreement, signed by the Tri-Global partners and the Government of Saskatchewan, sets the fee paid to the government and outlines the strategic funding priorities. For the years 2019-2024, the licence fee has been set at 3.75% of annual net lottery sales. To learn more, visit the Sask Lotteries website or watch the video below.
