No, your ticket purchase is not tax deductible. Although your purchase generously helps the BC SPCA care and protect animals in need, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) regulations do not allow purchased lottery tickets to be tax deductible.
As mandated by Canada Revenue Agency, lottery winnings are not taxable. They are not considered income or capital gains. The money is all yours!
Proceeds from your ticket purchase will provide emergency care for 40,000+ homeless, injured and abused animals in your community and throughout the province of British Columbia.
In addition to benefitting 36 BC SPCA branches, proceeds from the lottery will fund spay/neuter clinics in Prince George and Kamloops, a wildlife rehabilitation centre in Metchosin, a Provincial Call Centre for animal cruelty complaints, advocacy and humane education programs, and Special Provincial Constables who investigate complaints of animal cruelty and neglect.
