October 28, 2021 - Update!

Digital Government and Service NL (DGSNL) is looking for feedback on possible changes to the Lottery Licensing Regulations, which regulate charitable gaming in Newfoundland and Labrador. These types of lotteries include bingo, ticket sales, games of chance, sports lotteries, break-open lotteries and Monte Carlo lotteries that are for charitable or religious purposes.


While we recognize that municipalities are not eligible for a charitable lottery license, there are organizations within the community that have done so. To assist in providing all organizations, and community members, an opportunity to participate in the consultations, we are asking municipalities to post a link to the questionnaire on their website.


Lottery Licensing Regulations Consultations –

Success! Message received.

This is an important Bulk Collection message from The Burin Peninsula Regional Service Board:


Please be advised that due to the safety measures in place for COVID-19 our Monthly Household Bulk Collection is delayed and tentatively rescheduled for June. Please follow the Provincial Fire Regulations and refrain from burning your bulk and waste items. Also we ask that you not place items at the curbside until a new date is confirmed and check our website for updates. The Landfill Site continues usual operations for residents who wish to deliver their own Bulk items to the Public Drop Off area. Safety is our main concern as we continue to provide essential collection services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
