Some changes have been made to ensure that the ticket lottery is fair, transparent, and consistently managed. Please read the Q&A section below.
This year the entry period is from September 5 to December 1, 2022 to give Members and Nation employees time to adjust to the new process.
To enter the lottery, please complete the entry form at surveymonkey.com/r/ticket-lottery. If you require assistance filling out the form, please contact Council Advisory & Support at 604-980-4553.
Tickets given to Nexwsxwníw̓ntm ta Úxwumixw (Council) by external partners or the Nation’s departments are distributed through the lottery. This can include sports tickets such as Canucks and Warriors as well as other types of event tickets.
The tickets are generally distributed electronically. Members are asked to provide an email address in the entry form. Sometimes hard copy tickets are provided to the Nation. In that case, winners will be given pick-up instructions.
If a Member wins tickets for an event they are not interested in, or cannot attend, they must decline the tickets within 48 hours. Members who decline tickets or do not respond within 48 hours will be placed back in the lottery for the next draw.
Tickets that have been accepted cannot be returned and Members who have won tickets cannot sell or transfer their tickets to anyone else.
The lottery is open annually for a period of six weeks. As tickets are made available to the Nation throughout the year, staff conduct the draws from that pool of names. This year the entry period is from September 5 to December 1, 2022 to give Members and Nation staff time to adjust to the new process.
