Interior Health employees have the responsibility of ensuring they select the correct number of tickets deducted per pay period. On the online staff lottery portal, there is a drop-down for the number of entries and the total per pay period in bold. Employees should double-check the amount before confirming their enrollment and check their pay stubs for accuracy. You will also receive an e-mail notification of any changes made to your enrolment. If you notice a discrepancy in the amount you intended to select and your deduction, please update your information via the online portal, and the amount will be adjusted for subsequent draws. Note that adjustments cannot be made for deductions that have already occurred.

Interior Health Employees are responsible for ensuring they submit the correct information and check their pay stubs to ensure the correct deduction has been made. You will also receive an e-mail notification of any enrolment, changes or cancellations via the online portal. If an error is noticed, please notify the KGH Foundation immediately, and we will update your entries accordingly. There is a limited period where a refund may be considered that falls between when the deduction is made and when the draw list is submitted to our online raffle service provider on the Wednesday prior to the draw date. Past this point, the KGH Foundation cannot provide a refund as the chance to win by entry into the draw has already taken place. If this occurs, please contact us or cancel your enrolment via the online portal, and you will be removed from all subsequent draws.
