CHEO’s Dream of a Lifetime Lottery is on!

The CHEO Dream of a Lifetime Lottery has launched! With more cash prizes, early entry draws and chances to win, you’ll want to get your tickets as soon as you can. This year’s prize total is worth more than $5 million!

The Grand Prize package is valued at over $3.4 million and includes the always stunning Minto Dream Home built by Minto Communities Ottawa, exquisitely decorated by Tanya Collins and furnished by La-Z-Boy Furniture Galleries. This year’s design theme is Paris Apartment and is sure to wow! The Minto Dream Home is eastern Ontario’s first Breathe Well home, built with innovative indoor air quality technologies and energy-efficient, smart home solutions. Also for the first time, the grand prize home is located in the community of Arcadia in Kanata and open to the public beginning on Monday, September 12. Can’t visit in person? No problem! The virtual tour will be available later this month at

The grand prize winner will also receive $100,000 in cash, a 2022 Ford F150 XLT 4×4 Supercrew 302A from Donnelly Ford Lincoln (or $75,000), house cleaning for a year from ATC Cleaning, legal services from Mann Lawyers LLP, moving services from Adam’s Moving, $5,000 in groceries from Farm Boy and a $5,000 W.O. Stinson and Son Ltd. gas card.

The hugely popular 50/50 Draw is back once again. Last year’s lucky winner took home over $1.4 million. When purchasing Dream of a Lifetime Lottery ticket(s), remember to purchase your tickets for the 50/50 Cash Draw available at a cost of one for $10, five for $25 or 15 for $50.

The first deadline in this year’s Dream of a Lifetime Lottery is Friday, September 23. Order your tickets now and be eligible to win the Car, Camping or Cash Prize. It’s winner’s choice.
