34. No person may, in the matter of amusement machines, video lottery machines or lottery schemes, carry on an activity for which a licence is prescribed under this Act or the regulations thereunder, unless such a licence has been issued to him by the board upon payment to the board of the prescribed duties and the prescribed examination fees, in the manner and at the time prescribed.
However, in the case of a native community residing on a reserve or in a settlement determined by regulation and insofar as an agreement concerning the establishment of a local body has been reached between the Government and the native community, represented by its band council or the northern village, the Government may designate such local body as the body responsible for issuing bingo licences, on that reserve or settlement. The local body shall collect, for its own account, the duties prescribed in the first paragraph in respect of licences which it issues.
Any agreement reached pursuant to the second paragraph shall be tabled before the National Assembly within 15 days of being adopted by the Government or, if the Assembly is not sitting, within 15 days of resumption.
