A million dollar lottery ticket remains unclaimed somewhere in northern Vancouver Island.
The winner has until March 18 — one year after the ticket was purchased — to claim the prize, according to the British Columbia Lottery Corporation (BCLC).
The lottery corporation said it encourages anyone who bought a ticket on that date to check for the numbers 19117903-02.
The region includes the Alert Bay, Telegraph Cove, Port Hardy, Coal Harbour and Port McNeill municipalities.
The winner’s name and location where the winning lottery ticket was purchased will be announced once the prize is claimed, BCLC said.
